Clintonia Township Website
Call Community Action at 935-2455 for information on Energy Assistance.
Applications do have to be completed to apply for Township Assistance. They are available from the link above, in the office during regular business hours (which are listed under tab labeled "Contact Information"), or you may call for one to be mailed to you.
You must live in Clintonia Township to receive help.
Call to schedule an appointment at 217-935-2506.
An interview will be conducted with the applicant. Additional verifications will most likely be requested and ten days given to return those verifications. At that time, a determination of eligibility will be completed and a letter of that determination will be mailed to you. General Assistance will be determined first, which is required by law. If your income is above that program, Emergency Assistance will be determined as long as funding allows for this program.
Thirty days are allowed for the application to be completed by the Supervisor but is normally completed much sooner.
