GENERAL ASSISTANCE

samaritan-1178513-m The Orland Township General Assistance office provides financial assistance and referral information to Orland Township individuals and families during severe economic crisis. Orland Township Supervisor Paul O’Grady manages and controls the General Assistance program.

General Assistance is a financial aid program that helps residents meet basic needs until employment or another source of income, such as Social Security, disability or public aid, is obtained. Eligibility is determined by established guidelines based on income, assets and household size. Applicants should have no other potential means of income and should have applied for all possible benefits to be eligible.

Emergency Assistance is financial aid granted to qualified individuals and families on a short-term basis to alleviate life-threatening circumstances or to assist residents in returning to self-sufficiency. If an individual or family is eligible, they may receive assistance once in an 18-month period to meet basic expenses.

To be eligible for either General Assistance or Emergency Assistance, the applicant must meet certain financial and non-financial eligibility requirements and must supply his or her Social Security card, a lease or mortgage statement, pay stubs (for the past 30 days), bank statements, and proof of registry with Public Aid and the Illinois Job Service.

Applications to determine eligibility for General Assistance or Emergency Assistance are available at the Orland Township office. Once an application is completed and submitted with required documentation, please contact Orland Township at (708) 403-4222 to schedule an appointment.
