Quick Facts: The grant amount cannot exceed the equivalent of 60 days of delinquent payment for a specific circumstance and is capped at a $1,500.00 per request. The program can only support 1 emergency financial request per household. Each applicant will be connected to a financial counselor for a thorough pre and post assistance counseling session.
