IRRIGABLE LAND AND INDIGENT LOANS

The loans for support in 1936 aggregated $13,180 as compared with $20,826.24 in 1935 and $23,800.09 in 1934. The act provides that such loans may remain a charge and lien against the Indian lands until paid and reimbursements from such loans will therefore not be made as rapidly as in the case of industrial assistance loans. Loans for the improvement of irrigable allotments totaled $1,837.50.

Applications for loans are made on a printed form and submitted to the Indian Office for approval. The amount loaned any one Indian does not exceed $1,000 where the money is to be used for development of the allotment, and where the loan is due to old age, disability or indigence, such amount as may be necessary properly to care for the applicant, in no case to exceed $600 in any one fiscal year. The total amount loaned cannot exceed 50 percent of the appraised value of the permanent improvements. When the loan is approved notation is made on our land records against the trust allotment or inherited land of the applicant. The total amount of the loan is placed to the credit of the allottee as individual money to be used for the specific purpose required. When authorized for land development the money may be used for any kind of productive improvement, for drainage, leveling, fertilizer, seed, needed buildings, and for proper equipment. Loans to allottees on account of old age are used for necessary living expenses of the individual and his immediate dependent family.
