Welcome to the home of Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation

Per Capita

Per Capita

In 1998, the Per Capita Fund was established as a benefit to all enrolled Nation members including minor children. The National Indian Gaming Act requires an allocation plan for expenditure of all casino revenues. As a result, the General Council vote established that 48 percent of the net gaming revenues from Prairie Band Casino and Resort be allocated for Per Capita payments to be disbursed on a quarterly basis. This taxable benefit will continue until changed by a General Council vote. 

The per capita fund amount varies with the fluctuation of casino profits and number of enrolled members. 

The Per Capita Office is located at the Government Center - Upper Level. The Per Capita office is responsible for distributing shared casino revenue payments to all enrolled tribal members per the eligibility guidelines and to report those amounts to the Internal Revenue Service.
