We can help you determine which, if any, programs you might quality for and the type of assistance you might be eligible to receive. We can also provide referrals to other community resources if needed, as well as personal budgeting assistance for program recipients. Typically, eligibility is determined by several factors, such as your household income level, the number of individuals in your household, stability of your income, age, disability and citizenship status. You will be required to provide documentation to verify your identity, income and housing status (for example: birth certificates, tax returns, names and addresses of employers, landlords, banks, etc.).
