Short on cash? Parish will help you pay rent and utilities if you live on the east bank
Residents can apply for the Emergency Food and Shelter Federal Funds at 14564 River Road, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
“We will give out all of the funds available to us until all the funds are exhausted,” Barbara Dorsey, administrative assistant for the community services office told the Herald-Guide.
Funds are only available for residents living in the areas beginning at Montz and ending at St. Rose.
“Residents who live on the west bank side of the parish need to check with the Social Concerns office to see if they have funding available,” Dorsey said.
East bank residents who applied for and received assistance in 2006 are not eligible for the June 2007 funds.
Eligible residents must meet the following criteria to qualify:
- Must be facing an emergency crisis, such as loss of income due to illness, reduction of worker hours, etc...
- Must be a resident of St. Charles Parish.
- Residents must provide their current bill including disconnect notice to be considered for utility assistance.
- Mortgage foreclosure statements or an eviction notice must be submitted in order to qualify for rental assistance funds.Free lunch for seniors who attend community safety meeting
