One of the main services we provide is assistance to low-income households who, despite their personal efforts, are not able to provide for their basic needs. (Such as rent or mortgage payment, utilities, food, personal items, or medicine). We provide direct assistance as well as many referrals to other agencies' programs to which the applicant household may be eligible.Indiana township trustees are required to render decisions on the township assistance within 72 hours (3 business days), so we work hard to gather all needed information quickly. If you need assistance or information, please explore the website and call or visit the office.To apply for assistance, plan to arrive early. We take applications from 8:00 am to 11:00 am, but operate on a first-come first-served basis so to be sure to be seen the same day, arrive as early as possible. If your work schedule does not allow you to come in during regular hours, call and talk to the trustee to set up a special appointment.
