Family Preservation and PSSF:
The Purpose of the Family Preservation and PSSF Program is to:

  • Assist parents so that they are alleviated of stress by removing financial barriers to providing adequate education and health services to Indian children of our Tribal Community. (Health Services can include, dental, vision, sports exams, etc.)
  • To provide families with the ability to cope with the problems of daily living, and to preserve or restore their social, emotional or economic well-being providing for future tribal generations a more stable foundation.

Clients will only have to submit one application per year; however any changes to school status or address must be reported so that we may keep your application current.  A verification statement will be required prior to each issue date.
Applications will be released as funding becomes available to addresses on file at the Modoc Tribal enrollment office.  Make sure your address is current!

Educational Services are offered to Modoc Tribe of Oklahoma members. Services include opportunities for scholarships, funding for school and related expenses, and opportunities for lifelong learning. Additional education information can be found:
