There are nearly 5,000 enrolled members of the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation. Enrollment has declined considerably since a May 2000 amendment to the constitution, which made it necessary for members to possess at least 1/4 PBP Nation blood.
Applications for enrollment are available by request from the Member Services Department. All applications reviewed for enrollment must be complete and include all required documentation.
All incomplete applications will be returned to prospective members with a 30 day period to make revisions prior to the application being submitted to the Enrollment Review Committee for eligibility determination.
The Burial Fund was established to help ease the financial burden of funeral expenditures at a time of a family member's death.
The burial benefit will pay up to $ 6,000 in burial costs per eligible individual. Tribal members with funeral expense for stillborn or premature death of infant (who are less than 3 days old) can also be reimbursed for up to $500 to be paid to a funeral home for burial. All burial allowance applications and statements must be filed with the Tribal Council within one year from a member's date of death. The Burial Plan may be amended or terminated only by a vote of the General Council, with a quorum present, and approval by the Secretary of the Interior.
