Input is needed for the State Plan of Program Operations for the 2018 Federal Fiscal Year. These comments must be received before July 31, 2017.
 
WIC is a federally funded nutrition education and supplemental food program for low income pregnant, breastfeeding and postpartum women, infants, and children up to 5 years of age.

The EPA says the tribe will receive a $200,000 brownfield grant to clean up a former gymnasium on tribal land near McLoud that's been closed since 2010 and is believed to be contaminated with various substances.

Oklahoma City will receive a total of $300,000 in brownfield grants, with $200,000 for a hazardous substances assessment and $100,000 for a petroleum assessment in a 29-mile area targeted for development with housing, a 70-acre park and transportation.

DURANT – It was a ride of remembrance, as 11 bicyclists pulled out of Tupelo, Mississippi on May 19. Their journey was to retrace much of the Trail of Tears over seven days. Just after noon on Friday, May 26, the Choctaw Nation Trail of Tears Bike Team arrived at the tribal Headquarters in Durant, Oklahoma.

Jana Boykin was among the riders. She said the ride was to remember the tribe’s ancestors.

Teresa Eagle Road, who was riding for the sixth year, said, “Every day was different.”
