Statewide

Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS)
If you have no income, you may qualify for cash benefits and other assistance
(food, health care, etc.) through DHHS. You can apply in person at your local
DHHS office, or online at: newmibridges.michigan.gov. If you don’t have a
MiBridges account, you’ll have to register for one before applying. It’s very simple.

Local Churches
If you need financial help with an eviction or utility shut-off, call local churches
near you to see if they can help. Many churches set funds aside every month to
help people in the community. You may have to go to multiple churches to get all
the funds you need to resolve your emergency, since some have budgets where
they can only pay so much. Google churches + your zip code and start by calling
those first to see if they can help, or use your local yellow pages. It is highly
recommended that you call churches before visiting them in person, to save time
and gas.

Modest Needs is proud to support military veterans who have recently returned
from overseas deployment through our Homecoming Heroes Grant – a special
program designed to prevent our veterans from slipping into poverty as they work
to make the difficult transition from overseas deployment to civilian life. These
include long delays in processing their final active duty paychecks and the receipt
of VA and other benefits to which they are entitled, as well as special challenges
posed by the lingering physical and mental impact of all they have experienced.

Modest Needs – Self-Sufficiency Grant (US & Canada) 1-844-667-3776
www.modestneeds.org/about-us/grants-types-self-sufficiency.asp
Modest Needs is a non-profit organization provides short-term financial assistance
to individuals and families in temporary crisis who, because they are working and
live just above poverty level, are ineligible for most types of conventional social
assistance but who (like many of us) are living one or two paychecks away from
the kind of financial catastrophe that eventually leads to homelessness. Visit their
web site for the types of expenses they cover as well as their income and
employment guidelines.
