The Financial Assistance staff determines eligibility, issues benefits, and provides case management for all public assistance programs. We provide assistance to the elderly, disabled as well as low-income families and individuals. Our goal is to provide individuals with the financial support that they need and that they are eligible to receive. Each person applying for public assistance has different factors that may affect eligibility; it is our job to apply program policy to each household’s specific situation.
As a first step in determining if you will possibly qualify for various programs you can use the Eligibility Screening Tool.
