The Decision


You'll meet with one of our staff, and fill out our application for assistance.

You can get a head start by printing the application and being sure you have all the required information.  Please don't sign the application before your meeting with our staff. You can do that at the meeting.

We do an intensive client investigation of the situation, environment and circumstances of your emergency. Perry Township acts as a bridge to help you get out of the emergency situation. We talk with you about your short and long-term needs. We can put you in touch with private, local, state and federal organizations that might be able to help. We can also provide immediate assistance for basic living requirements such as rent, housing, transportation and food.

Because this is emergency aid, we try process your applications as quickly as we can.

If you have any other questions, or to be sure you qualify as a Perry Township resident, just give us a call at 812-336-3713.
