Emergency Assistance

Eligibility

  • Applicants must be in a situation which is likely to result in homelessness or loss of health and safety standards in the home, including loss of heating source.

  • Applicants may only be assisted on 3 occasions within the span of a year, and they may not receive more than $2,000 in total assistance for a span of 2 years.

Having a reliable place to call home is an essential part of life and those experiencing difficulties in keeping a home can use the Emergency Assistance Program to help. Situations which qualify for emergency assistance include notices of eviction, foreclosure, or the disconnection or discontinuation of a major service such as electricity, water, propane, or heating oil.

Applicants must provide proof of the notice received and the program pays the notice-issuing vendor directly on the applicant’s behalf.
