EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE / UTILITY ASSISTANCE / OTHER SAFETY-NET PROGRAMS

We will have applications in an envelope on the porch to our office for various assistance programs. Residents can telephone the office for help completing the applications and return completed applications and documents to the locked mail box on our office porch. Wherever possible, we will assist residents via phone with applications for Medicaid, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).
Moraine Township staff will do everything possible to expedite processing applications for emergency assistance.

SENIOR WELLNESS TELEPHONE CHECKS

Our goal is for staff to connect with each of the low-income seniors who have accessed Township services to see how they are doing and what they may need, and try to figure out how to get them critical supplies while they are safely staying home.

TOWNSHIP PROGRAMS TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED

The following Township programs are suspended until further notice:

  • Passports:Passport application procession;
  • RTA Discount Card applications;

PAPER GROCERY BAGS WITH HANDLES:
Desperately need bags to pack food in since clients are not shopping with their own reusable bags. We will have bins on the porch outside our office for untorn paper grocery bags. We are fortunate to live in a unique and generous community. It takes a village and the Township is grateful for our residents’ genuine concern for their struggling neighbors.
