There are programs to provide you with cash income or to help you pay for food, work and school costs, child care, or heat. We may be able to help if you are having trouble getting or keeping these benefits.
Most low-income people are eligible for SNAP (also called Food Stamps) to buy food. You can get cash assistance if you have very little income and you live with minor children. Child Care Payments help pay for care of your child while you are at work, in school, or doing other approved job activities. Heat Assistance (LIHEAP) helps pay for heat for your home.
Apply for these benefits at the welfare office and come to our office if you are turned away or are told you do not qualify.
We also may be able to help if you are having trouble getting benefits because you don’t speak, write, or understand English well.
