Governmental and non-governmental assistance programs eligibility requirements may be very complicated. Generic terms such as "income" and "assets" have very specific, technical definitions that are unique to each program. Additionally, almost all programs require a variety of supporting documentation, such as proof of income and assets, and proper identification. What is considered acceptable documentation may be different for each program. Completing the paperwork properly and submitting the correct documents is very important for a successful application. An appointment with an LRRC Case Manager may save you a significant amount of time and may expedite acceptance to the assistance programs.
