To Qualify for Financial Assistance

If you 1) live in our service area and 2) have a documented crisis, you may be eligible to receive help paying your utility bills, or rent/mortgage assistance. Financial assistance is offered as funding is available.

A documented crisis is a situation that came about unexpectedly and can be documented.  Such a crisis created an immediate need and was not caused by conduct of the individual. CLC’s financial assistance is not a pension, income supplement, or an entitlement program. Note that changes in temporary or seasonal employment are not considered unexpected.

In order to qualify for financial assistance, you will need to provide documentation proving loss of income in your name that has created this crisis.


Required documentation to complete the application includes:
-Photo ID
-Proof of crisis documentation (for example, layoff notice from employer)
-Social Security cards for all household members
-And, the item you are requesting assistance with (for example, unpaid utility bill)

To Qualify for Food Assistance
