211 EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
For those experiencing financial hardship related to the COVID-19 pandemic
APPLY FOR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
Please use the link below to access the application for the 211 Emergency Assistance Program. We ask that anyone interested in receiving assistance first speak with a 211 representative. If you have not spoken with a 211 representative yet, please call 211 to be connected with a Community Resource Specialist before attempting to apply or access the application.
We recommend using a smartphone to complete this application, since the application allows you to take pictures of required documents and upload them with your phone. Applicants will typically receive a response within two business days, but please note that high application volumes may create longer than usual response times.
211 is a free and confidential service providing information, community resources, and referrals for a variety of health and human service issues 24/7, every day of the year. Our professional and caring call specials are here to help.
