General Assistance is a locally administered welfare program which provides basic maintenance needs to persons who are not eligible for any other state or federal assistance programs.  Eligibility is based on financial and non-financial criteria. Assistance is available for Shelter, Food, Utilities, and Household Supplies and Personal Incidentals if eligible.


Persons in need of General Assistance may apply at our office.  Residents deemed potentially eligible for benefits or services through other agencies, may be referred to a more appropriate agency suited to meet their needs.
