On Tuesday, residents of Vermilion Parish in need of emergency financial assistance can apply for help from the ASSIST Agency at two meetings.

ASSIST Agency offers help to people who need it to recover from a temporary setback. Money can’t be used for deposits or reconnections, but can be used to pay utility bills, rent and mortgages.

Residents can apply at Kaplan City Hall on the third Tuesday of every month from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., and at the Erath City Hall on the second Tuesday of every month, from 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. It’s best to call ahead for an appointment; call 898-9554.
