The GENERAL ASSISTANCE Office must determine the eligibility of each applicant. GENERAL ASSISTANCE has specific constraints regarding financial eligibility and there are also numerous non-financial eligibility requirements that must be met. The maximum amount of a benefit is limited by the payment level established by the GENERAL ASSISTANCE Office. In some circumstances applicants are eligible for GENERAL ASSISTANCE, but not eligible for the maximum amount of the benefit. When an applicant is approved for GENERAL ASSISTANCE the applicant is then required to develop and implement either a Community Work Program and/or a Job Search Program if the applicant is physically capable. An applicant that has been approved WILL NOT RECEIVE CASH . If approved, the GENERAL ASSISTANCE office will issue “disbursing orders” totaling the approved grant amount to vendors to supply goods and services.
