Lori Evans, Supervisor
General Assistance & Emergency Assistance Available
Clintonia Township Website
Call Community Action at 217-935-2455 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, or you may call for one to be mailed to you. As you will read in the Contact Information page, we cannot possibly be in the office at all times with only one person in each office, so please call first.
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 are 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 the program.
Thirty days are allowed for the application to be completed by the Supervisor but is normally completed much sooner.
