The COVID-19 emergency has caused a broad range of public health and economic challenges in tribal communities. Interim guidance for ARPA has presented Catawba Nation with the opportunity to provide valuable services and ensure economic recovery. The funds provided must be obligated to pandemic response and eligibility is dependent upon each program guidance.
This page provides information on current and future programs that the Nation is putting into place for our people.
Homeowner Support Programs

Catawba Septic Maitenance
The Catawba Indian Nation was awarded funds through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The ARPA is intended to help Tribal communities respond and recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Catawba Indian Nation is introducing the Septic Maintenance Program through the use of ARPA funding. The purpose of the Catawba Septic System Maintenance Fund is to provide eligible Tribal Households assistance with septic system pumping. The address being serviced must be within the Tribe’s service area, State of South Carolina, and 6 counties in North Carolina; Cabarrus, Cleveland, Gaston, Mecklenburg, Rutherfordton, and Union. This is a "first-come, first-served" opportunity and applications will be approved as funding is available.
