General & Emergency Assistance: One of the most important functions of township government is to provide General & Emergency Assistance for town residents who are going through a difficult time in their lives. It is not a permanent form of income, but it will help town residents who are not eligible for other forms of government assistance. A typical client must meet the following criteria:
- Live in the Township
- Be in the process of applying for social security, or
- Lost a job and searching for employment
The township offers help in filling out social security forms and offers bus tickets for job searches for those who are able to work.
Emergency Assistance is offered to residents who are awaiting other forms of assistance and are faced with a life-threatening situation.
