Tunica-Biloxi Providing Laptop Computers to Tribal Students

The Tunica-Biloxi Tribe has access to federal funding through the Cares Act to provide tribal families with a computer device for Tunica-Biloxi students who will be doing virtual instruction online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As most school districts are providing devices, the Tribe will only provide a laptop if the family’s homeschool service provider or their school district has exhausted their inventory. Many school districts are requiring a device loan agreement. We will verify if there is device availability with the school district or homeschool service provider before issuing a computer. If you have not already done so, reach out to your child’s school or homeschool provider to inquire about receiving a computer.

To receive a computer through the Tribe, you may request an application from the following individuals.

John Barbry
