Discover how an “emergency” is defined, who qualifies for emergency assistance and when it is appropriate to request an “exception to policy”. Learn when recipients are required to repay these grants, as well as how often they can receive them. Find out how to apply for emergency assistance and how to create a compelling case when requesting shelter arrears.
