Southwest Human Resource Agency is now accepting applications for a one-time food voucher from income eligible persons who have experienced a qualifying circumstance related to COVID-19. Contact the local SWHRA Community Service Center for information on how to apply.
Households must meet the following criteria in order to receive assistance: Must complete application and provide a current state issued identification, documentation of social security numbers for all household members and the last 30 days of gross household income; income must be within 200 percent of Federal Poverty Guidelines; must provide documentation of decreased income or job loss due to COVID-19 or another acceptable reason related to COVID-19.
Applications will be accepted in the SWHRA Community Service Centers. Applications will be reviewed for eligibility and applicants will be notified of their status within five (5) days. Benefit is based on household size: HH of one – $150; HH of two – $200; or HH of three or more – $300. SWHRA will have an agreement with local stores in each county in which the voucher is to be redeemed.
SWHRA will ensure that no person on the basis of handicap, race, color, religion, sex, age or national origin will be excluded from participation in, or be denied benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination in the operation of the Community Services Block Grant.
