FOR the past three weeks, the Carolinian Affairs Office or Bwulasiyool Refaluwasch has been assisting community members in going through the economic impact payment/stimulus check application process, Rep. Marco Peter said.

On Thursday, the office opened its doors to assist Carolinians in preparing their economic impact payment or EIP applications.

As word spread in the community, non-Carolinians have also shown up at the CAO to seek help in preparing their stimulus check forms.

“Everyone has been showing up, not only Carolinians,” Peter said. “We are trying to get the Covid-19 task force…to assist [the office] and give them funding.”

The CAO needs to install Plexiglas as a safety feature to separate its employees and community members who come into the office to seek assistance, he added.

The office is also in need of other resources, such as ink cartridges for copiers, Peter added.

He added that he has reached out to the governor’s authorized representative, Patrick Guerrero, regarding these concerns.

Guerrero is scheduled to meet with the House Special Committee on Federal Assistance and Disaster Related Funding this Wednesday to discuss the expenditure plan of the administration for the emergency funding the Commonwealth has received from the Federal Emergency Management Agency in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.
