PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Members of the Oglala Sioux Tribe who became unemployed due to severe storms on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in May are eligible for disaster assistance.

South Dakota’s Department of Labor and Regulation announced the availability of disaster unemployment assistance on Monday for tribal members whose employment, self-employment or prospective employment was lost or interrupted as a direct result of straight-line winds and flooding.

Claims must be filed by Sept. 16.

Free re-employment assistance also is available through local offices of the Labor and Regulation Department.
