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.

- 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
