Chapter 68 of the Nebraska Statutes requires counties to provide for the poor of the county who are not eligible for any other governmental assistance and do not have a parent, stepparent, or spouse responsible for their support. These statutory requirements are the basis for the programs administered by the Department of General Assistance, which are considered to be "programs of last resort."

I am looking for help with utilities. I am working was laid off due to no work. I’ve applied through DHHS and get SNAP but because I am working now I don’t qualify for help even though I applied in September when I was not working. I just got denied at the beginning of this money. My electric is going to get shut off they will not extend any longer I don’t know what to do.
