Notification of CARES Act Inflation and Supply Chain Interruption Assistance

KIC Shareholders,

At a Special Meeting held on December 15, 2021, the Board of Directors of Kikiktagruk Inupiat Corporation adopted Resolution No. CY 2021-080 “CARES Act Inflation and Supply Chain Interruption Assistance” to address the financial impact experienced by KIC Shareholders as a result of systemic inflation and supply chain interruptions due to the COVID-19 public health emergency. Please see Resolution No. CY2021-80 here.

It is KIC’s intent to disburse checks by December 31, 2021. It is important to note that, as a condition of the disbursement, individuals receiving checks will be required to attest as follows;

“By receiving and endorsing this check, I attest that I have incurred increased costs of at least $500 from inflation and supply chain interruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic between March 1, 2020, and Nov 30, 2021.”

This statement will appear on the check that you receive. If you determine that you have not incurred increased costs of at least $500 due to COVID-19 related inflation or supply chain disruptions, then you are not required to accept the disbursement and should not endorse or deposit the check.

While this disbursement may not fully address the COVID-related financial hardships experienced to date and continuing into the foreseeable future, it is the sincere hope of the KIC Board of Directors that it provides some relief to our Shareholders.

On behalf of the Kikiktagruk Inupiat Corporation Board of Directors,
