Emergency Assistance

What is Emergency Assistance to Families (EAF)?

Emergency Assistance to Families (EAF) is a federally participating program which helps to meet the needs of persons dealing with crises and emergency situations beyond their control.  Such needs could include financial help with eviction, homelessness, heating fuel, utility disconnects, domestic violence, and child care (day care or temporary foster care).

Who is eligible for EAF? 

To be eligible for EAF, either as part of an ongoing public assistance case or for one-time only assistance, certain criteria must be met:

* The child is without resources immediately accessible to meet his needs.

* A family must have a child under age 18, or a child under age 19 who regularly attends secondary school.

 * The child for whom EAF is provided must be currently living with an eligible relative.

* Women who have been medically verified as pregnant, but who have no other children, may receive EAF if they are otherwise eligible for public assistance.

* Illegal aliens who meet categorical and programmatic criteria.
