  • How often can I apply for the grant?
    One grant will be permitted per household per calendar year
  • How will I receive the grant?
    The individual requesting help will submit a bill or bills that need paying. Approved grant monies will be paid directly to an entity (i.e. business, shop, service provider, or licensed provider.) The Service Provider must provide proof of liability insurance.
  • Can more than one person from the same household apply for assitance?
    This will be decided on a case-by-case basis and may be discussed by the board.
  • How long will I have to wait to receive the grant?
    At the moment, grants take 4-6 months to receive. Much of the timeliness is dependent on how soon the applicant's references get back to the grant administrator.
