The Human Services Agency General Relief program provides temporary assistance to eligible adults ages 18 to 64, with no dependent children. When no other source of assistance is available, General Relief can help with the most basic living needs, including rent, utilities, and incidentals.
Eligible adults may receive direct payments to their landlord and/or utility companies, up to a maximum of $310 per month, for a household of one. General Relief payments are considered a loan and must be repaid to the County.
