Emergency Financial Assistance

What is the Emergency Financial Assistance (EFA) Program?

The Emergency Financial Assistance program provides grants for basic, non-medical needs that relieve immediate financial concerns. These grants can be used to pay for many nonmedical expenses, such as rent, utilities, phone bills, car payments, car repairs, gas, food, and more.

Below are the general requirements applicable to our Emergency Financial Assistance Program. Individuals must:

      • Be over 18 years of age.
