WINNEBAGO, Neb. | More than 5,000 enrolled members of the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska did not receive an anticipated $250 stimulus check in July due to tribal budget constraints, according to Tribal Council records.

According to minutes of the June 5 Tribal Council meeting, Tribal Treasurer Brian Chamberlain said the tribe could not afford the stimulus disbursements, which would have totaled $1.3 million. The Tribal Council didn’t discuss the issue after Chamberlain moved for a vote, which passed 8-0, according to the minutes.
