HOGANSBURG — Though spring fever is setting in, heating help is still on the way to the St. Regis Mohawk tribe. For the third year in a row, the tribe will receive funds from Venezuelan government-owned Citgo. Qualified applicants will receive approximately 100 gallons of free home heating fuel to help get them through the winter, according to the tribe.Other than the five boroughs of New York City, the tribe is the only community in the state to receive help, according to Citgo officials."It's for tribes in the north for whom heating becomes a survival issue," said David T. Staddon, director of public information for the tribe. "We are the northernmost tribe in the state."
