Emergency Assistance

We can give you what you need to get ahead!

Emergency Assistance can help you:

  • Avoid utility shut down
  • Avoid eviction
  • Pay first month’s rent
  • Cover costs of prescription drugs

To receive emergency assistance you must meet the federal eligibility guidelines.

Applicants are only permitted to receive emergency assistance once annually.

Each case is reviewed individually by our staff. The amount given is dependent on funds available.
