After receiving your application, we will contact you to set up an appointment to meet with a financial consultant. Together you and the consultant will review your application and financial situation, and then develop an action plan.

We will conduct a thorough, careful review of your request and notify you of your application status. Before awarding assistance, we look at many options, including personal resources, government and community agencies, and family and friends, to help us determine what type of assistance you may be able to receive. Recommendations may include a grant, referral to outside resources or agencies, and/or budget help.
