Emergency Family Needs Program Offers:
Emergency Family Needs (EFN) can assist people with rent or mortgage payments, rental deposits, prescription eyeglasses and car repairs, among other emergency needs. EFN does not provide assistance with utility payments, food, or other needs that can be met through other assistance programs.
While there are no income restrictions for the EFN program, applicants must show that they have minor children living at home or that they are senior citizens or are disabled.
