Financial Assistance for Low-Income Residents Impacted by COVID-19

Dear friends – We regret to inform you that we have already reached the maximum capacity of households that we will be able to serve with the initial $11 million in contributions collected for this initiative. As a result, we are no longer accepting applications for financial assistance.

If you meet the eligibility criteria listed below, please consider adding your name to the following Interest List. Please note: there is no guarantee that we will be able to provide assistance to any households on the Interest List. However, when/If additional funding becomes available, we will contact eligible households on the Interest List with information on how they can complete an application.

ADD MY NAME TO THE INTEREST LIST

In the meantime, we encourage all residents to learn about, and apply for, other forms of assistance currently available.

For those who already submitted an application:

Please note: due to the extremely high rate of submissions, it is taking us longer than initially expected to process and respond to all applications. We are doing our best to process applications as quickly as we can, but it will likely take up to 14 days before we can respond to your application. To help our staff work as quickly as possible, we ask that you please wait until 7 days have passed before you call/email us to check the status of your application. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
