In order to be considered for the June 2019 per capita distribution of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, completed enrollment applications for new applicants must be submitted to the EBCI Enrollment Office by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, March 15. Enrollment applications received after this date and time will not be considered for the June 2019 distribution.
An application will only be considered complete with a county or state certified birth certificate, certified DNA results and certification of all other Indian blood. To schedule an appointment for DNA, call Michelle Stiles (828) 359-6463.
DNA testing must be collected by Thursday, Feb. 28 in order for the results to be in by March 15. Any DNA collected after this date is not guaranteed to be returned by the deadline. Because of the extended amount of time in receiving a social security number for a newborn, an application will be considered complete without a social security card. However, an enrollment card will only be issued upon receipt of the social security card of a new enrollee.
Applications may be obtained from the Enrollment Office located at 808 Acquoni Rd. or at https://www.ebci.com. Info: Enrollment Office (828) 359-6465
