Cherokee Nation Angel Project

Angel Project

TAHLEQUAH, Okla. — The Cherokee Nation will soon begin taking applications for the tribe’s Angel Project.

More than 1,700 children received holiday gifts through the program last year.

To qualify for the program, children must be 16 years of age or younger. Applicants must provide proof of income for all household members over the age of 18. For example, a family of three must not exceed $2,100 in household income per month, and a family of four must not exceed $2,531 per month.

Applicants must also provide proof of residency and each child’s Cherokee Nation citizenship card and clothing and shoe size. For more information, please email
