General Assistance

Township government was formed for the purpose of assisting low income, homeless, and unemployed residents. Today's General Assistance program is funded through real estate taxes.  Assistance with food, rent, utilities, and medications is available to qualified residents. Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) applications are taken from September to May, or depending on available funding.  The General Assistance office operates a food pantry based solely on private contributions. To meet with a caseworker, please call 620-2400 for an appointment, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
