For financial assistance, clients need to complete a pre-screening form to assess eligibility. Eligibility will depend on funding requirements.

IMPORTANT: In order to evaluate if you qualify for the financial assistance service you must go through the pre-screening/pre-qualification process.

  • You may be denied services if you falsify a document or have been dishonest in the eligibility evaluation interview.
  • You must be willing to establish a plan with future goals to stabilize your situation.
  • The payment is limited to one month of assistance for the period of the expenditure and must guarantee stable housing for the following 30 days
  • The process can take up to three days depending on how fast the required documents are provided and completed – checks will take at least one day after the supporting documents and forms are complete.
