The Mill City/Gates Community Assistance program offers emergency assistance for essential services and needs, including gasoline,  help with water, electricity, heat, rent, and prescriptions, and where to find food. Here's a breakdown of the assistance available in each category:

  • Assistance Provided: The program offers gasoline assistance, which is particularly helpful for those who need fuel for commuting to work or medical appointments.
  • Limitations: Eligible recipients can receive up to one gas card per request.
  • Frequency: Assistance can be given a maximum of four times in a 12-month period per address.
Water, Electricity, Heat, Rent, and Prescriptions:
  • Assistance Coverage: The program helps with bills for water, electricity, heating, rent, and medical prescriptions where need and eligibility have been established.
  • Financial Limit: The assistance will cover 50% of the total bill, up to a maximum payment of $100. For example, if a bill amounts to $300, the required contribution would be $150, but the program will cover only $100.
  • Payment Process: All payments are made directly to the service provider or landlord, ensuring the funds are used specifically for the intended bills and not as cash handouts.
