Emergency funds for food, housing and utilities may be provided to veterans and active military personnel and/or their dependants. Qualifying applicants will have established three months of residency in Licking County, and will have a qualifying DD Form 214 or military ID card. The following factors will be considered when determining financial need: proof of income, assets, and current bills. Unemployed veterans are required to be actively seeking employment or must provide medical evidence of the inability to work. Applications for financial assistance are taken Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 3:30pm by appointment only. Financial assistance will not be taken on legal holidays, the fourth Tuesday, Wednesday, and the last Friday of every month. In December financial assistance will not be taken after the third Tuesday. Please contact the Veterans' Service Office for details. A list of items needed to complete the application for emergency financial assistance is included, as well as, a “landlord statement” if rent is unpaid.
