Emergency Assistance Programs offer short-term support for people who need financial assistance in a crisis situation, such as a natural disaster, utility short off, or eviction. There are two types of assistance:
Emergency Assistance (EA) is for low-income families experiencing a financial crisis.
Emergency General Assistance (EGA) helps low-income adults without children experiencing a financial crisis.
Along with the completed application you may need an interview. Your application will be screened when you turn it in, and you will be scheduled for the next available interview. Unless you meet certain criteria, your interview will most likely not be the same day.
Please bring the following to your interview:
Proof of Identity (driver's license, passport, etc.)
Proof of Residency (driver's license, bill, etc.)
Proof of Income
Other documentation which provides information regarding your income and financial status, including assets.
