What to Expect After Applying for Financial Assistance

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

In order to best understand your situation, we may request financial documents, such as:

  • Employee and spouse payroll statements
  • Debt statement including vehicle and house
  • Rent payment receipts and services/utilities
  • Miscellaneous receipts such as medicine, service quotes, etc.

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 and government and community agencies 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.

The entire process takes between 4-6 weeks.
