This program provides Boxborough households with short-term financial assistance for emergency needs using grant funding from the Federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The Community Services Coordinator (CSC) is available to help fill out the application if needed.
The assistance is primarily intended to cover the costs of rent, utilities and other emergency situations (e.g., medical, dental expenses and transportation). Assistance is up to a total of $1,000 in a twelve-month period.
Once reviewed and approved by an oversight team, the funds will be paid directly to the service provider (e.g., landlord, utility, medical professional). They will not be paid to you.
