The Emergency program is funded through the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG). The Emergency Program is designed to provide assistance to a household facing a crisis situation due to an unexpected occurrence that has negatively impacted the household’s financial stability. Examples of such occurrences could be, but not limited to, reduction in household income, loss of employment, or an unexpected essential household expense.
MCCAA provides assistance through a one- time payment of a past due essential utility bill or rent/ mortgage. In addition to providing the household with the monetary services, MCCAA also provides a Financial Education component with the Emergency program. Each household participating in the Emergency program must participate in a budgeting session with the Community Service Associate.
All Emergency program participants must meet specific program guidelines in addition to CSBG income eligibility guidelines. Service is based on funding availability.
