GTB 2020 Tribal Needs Survey (Personal Info)

Greetings From Tribal Manager

Aanii (Hello) GTB Tribal Member!

The Tribal Council of the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians (GTB) is seeking your input for several aspects of tribal life through a comprehensive survey for GTB tribal members 18 years of age and older. The survey topics include housing, health care and your experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic. Your participation is very important; your comments will help us better understand the needs of you and your fellow tribal community members. The information from the survey will provide opportunities to apply for grants that will be used to support these specific areas of need within the GTB. It will also be used to allocate tribal resources to meet the needs of GTB members.

As you begin the survey, please remember that your contributions will positively impact your community today, tomorrow and for future generations. We can work together to ensure healthy families, quality homes and a bright future. 

Note: all responses will be kept strictly confidential. Your personal information will be collected to make sure each set of answers will only be recorded once, but identifying information will be separated from the survey itself.

Please take some time to complete the enclosed survey, and do your best to answer all questions honestly and thoroughly. Once complete, please return the survey in the enclosed, stamped envelope. As a token of our appreciation, you will receive a $25 gift card once we have received your completed survey. Only GTB tribal members 18 years of age and older currently living in the 6-county service area are eligible to complete the survey and receive the gift card.

Please return the survey by September 14, 2020. 

If you have any questions about this survey, please contact Tamra Newton at (231) 866-1120 or by e-mail at:

Miigwetch for your important contributions to GTB and helping our community!
