Assistance programs provided by Milton Township include:
General Assistance is a state-mandated program for those residents who do not fit into categories administered by Social Security or the Department of Human Services. It provides a monthly grant to a single adult with no income who is seeking employment or a determination regarding disability benefits. This is an on-going grant with Work Program and Volunteering requirements.
Emergency Assistance is for those residents who meet our income guidelines and are struggling to pay rent, mortgage or have a disconnect notice for gas, electric or water.
(Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program) applications are taken during the heating season by appointment only.)
