The Johnson O’Malley Program is a federal program designed to ensure that Indian children receive the educational opportunities that would not otherwise be provided. The JOM program’s basic purpose is to provide supplementary financial assistance to meet the unique and specialized education needs to Indian Children.

The program provides students that meet eligibility requirements with basic school supplies at the beginning of the school year and assist with eye wear and athletic shoes each school year. The Otoe-Missouria JOM Program distributes these supplies to Native American children in the Frontier, Morrison and Perry School Districts only.

If your child attends a school other than these three school districts, you will need to call your child's school to determine your JOM distribution site. i.e. Enid School District JOM distribution location is the Cheyenne & Arapaho Tribe, Ponca City School District JOM distribution location is the Ponca Tribe.
