AMC Pandemic Support Instructions

May 25, 2020

Treaty One Territory, Manitoba


UPDATE: Deadline extended to Friday, June 5, 2020 at midnight.

The Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs (AMC) has received limited funding to support First Nations citizens from Manitoba that are living in the City of Winnipeg. 

It is unfortunate that due to the limited amount of funding received by the AMC, first consideration will be given to those applicants who have not been provided support by their First Nation, Tribal Council, other First Nation organizations, Red Cross or other Government programs.

Note:  Due to limited funding, we may not have enough resources to assist everyone.  

If you have already received assistance elsewhere please consider those who have not received support during this difficult time.

 Application Process

Please complete the online application form at the following link before May 29, 2020.  Ensure your application is complete and all required documents are provided.  Incomplete applications may affect your eligibility. The application can be completed via cell phone by scanning the QR code on the PDF linked below. To help those who may not have the required documents our staff may contact Chief and Council to verify applicants. For any other questions about the application process please contact

Please note the online form will be down on May 23 from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm Central Standard Time.

First Nations from Manitoba that are Winnipeg based citizens who require assistance completing an application may call the EAGLE Urban Transition Centre at 204-954-3050 or toll free 1-866-345-1883. Please be ready to email required documents to

Return calls will be made to those whose Emergency Assistance is completed and ready to be mailed. Please do not call if you have already registered.

Financial Assistance

Families provided with financial assistance will receive an AMC TruCash Visa Prepaid/Reloadable Card in the mail. Once the card has been received, the First Nation individual will call the number provided above to verify they received the card and the funds will be loaded to the card. The card can be used just like a Visa.

Safety Kits

Families provided with safety kits will be notified which day the kit will be dropped off. The First Nation individual will verify that they will be home to receive the kit and the kit will be delivered to their door. The delivery driver will leave the package at the door and wait to verify the individual has received the package.

We ask all those participating in this process to be patient with the staff.  

Stay safe, healthy and have a good summer.
