Southwest Reservation Aid™

Up to 43 percent of Native American children live in poverty and 29 percent of employed Native Americans live below poverty level.

The Southwest Reservation Aid™ (SWRA) program, formerly named the Council of Indian Nations, provides food, water, health products and emergency relief services for Native American Elders, families and children in need living on reservations in the Southwest.
