We’ve Changed Our Name

We have some exciting news to report, including a change to our name — and a great new logo!

We are now Northern Plains Reservation Aid (NPRA). Formerly American Indian Relief Council (AIRC), we made this strategic change to more clearly reflect our mission and services focused on urgently needed resources to Native American communities in the Northern Plains.

90,000 Native Americans are homeless or live in unsafe and sub-standard housing, and 23 percent of Native families live with low food security.

The Northern Plains Reservation Aid™ (NPRA) Program provides food, water, health products and emergency relief services for Native American Elders, families and children in need living on reservations in the Northern Plains.

Jennie and Rosella

In Native American cultures, Elders are the wisdom keepers.

Featured Service

Harsh winters in the Northern Plains bring bitter cold, severe wind chills and damaging storms that often lead to power outages, water outages or water contamination, and displacement of Elders, families and children.

You can help make it possible for an Elder to get through an extra storm or reduce the worry about staying warm.
