WINNEBAGO, Neb. (AP) - The Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska will again offer stimulus payments to enrolled members after canceling them in July because of budget constraints.

Tribal officials tell the Sioux City Journal (http://bit.ly/1LfuGRz ) that the $250 payments will be issued Dec. 3 at the Blackhawk Community Center. Those with outstanding loans to tribal offices or child support will forfeit the checks to help cover the debt.

The tribe’s website says the payments are considered nontaxable gifts from the tribe.

In July, more than 5,000 enrolled members of the Winnebago Tribe did not get the checks - which would have totaled $1.3 million - due to budget problems.
