Frequently Asked Questions - Appeals
Who would I talk to about getting financial assistance?
The process begins by completing an application for services with intake staff. Once a complete application is received, it is assigned to a caseworker.
Do I need an appointment to meet with intake staff?
No, intake staff are available to meet with clients on a walk-in basis between 8:00 am to 3:00 pm Monday through Friday.
If I’ve received services from Central Council in the past, do I need to turn in a new application?
No, you do not need to complete an application if you have received services in the past 90 days. After 90 days a new application is required.
