EMERGENCY FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
The Emergency Financial Assistance Program combines an immediate response to crisis with an expectation of personal accountability by the recipient of our assistance to prepare for the avoidance of a future crisis.
A crisis is an economic problem resulting from an unexpected event or circumstance beyond the control of the individual, which threatens their ability to maintain the basic necessitates of food, shelter or prescription medications.
Immediate assistance may be provided after the crisis is validated and the individuals ability to solve the problem on their own has been evaluated. As funds are available, assistance may be provided to avoid utility interruptions, to avoid eviction or foreclosure, to avoid loss of heating or cooling during critical seasons or to avoid absence of life sustaining medications.
If approved, financial assistance is provided once per year, per household. Please use the button below to complete our online assistance application. Should you have any questions after submitting your application please contact our office at 804-308-2648 and speak with a Case Worker.
