Township Assistance Declines in Data Reports from 2014 to 2016
21 June 2016
The Perry Township Trustee's office has experienced a general decline in applicants for its Emergency Assistance Program since 2014. In data compiled by the Township, this decline is reflected across several measures of Township activity, such as walk-in inquiries about assistance, actual appointments taken, and money paid out to vendors for assistance. Conversely, traffic to the Bobbie's Place Food Pantry run by the Township office has increased fairly steadily from 2014 to 2016.
The charts and graphs below are intended to reflect this data, and were compiled by Case Investigator Laura Blaker. This information was retrieved from Township appointment books, sign-in sheets, and the computer system. Most of the data compiled compares the periods of January-May across 2014, 2015, and 2016.
