Acadia Parish residents will be able to receive assistance during emergency situations from a grant with the ASSIST Agency. The money will be available to help with utilities and rent or mortgage. To qualify for eligibility, you must live in Acadia Parish, have experienced a recent emergency situation, and meet specific requirements. Many situations can qualify as an emergency, such as car repairs, illness, temporary reduction of income, very high utility bill, and more. If you were affected by the recent floods you may also qualify. If you believe you may qualify, please call the ASSIST Agency at 788-7550 x 138 for an appointment.
