What do I need to bring to apply for assistance?

Generally, clients must bring the following:

•     Proof of income from the last 30 days for everyone in the household 18 years or older. If someone 18 years or older is a full-time student, please submit a letter from their school or college verifying enrollment.
•     Social Security card or Birth Certificate for all members of the household.
•     Picture ID for the person applying
•     Copy of your lease, a rent receipt, or mortgage statement showing housing cost
•     Gas/electric bills or account numbers

For a checklist of items needed, please see our What to Bring Checklist.
For more details on what information can be used to prove your income, please see our Documentation by Income Source sheet.
