How does it work?

Families who qualify complete and submit an application. The application is referred to a Community Coach who works one-on-one with the family to provide information and help them connect with the resources in our community that meet their needs. 

How we help

  • Currently, the most common needs are rent and utility assistance.
  • Families are encouraged to reach out for assistance as soon as they know they are unable to pay rent and/or utilities. 
  • All resources require an application and the application process could take 10 days or more to process. Rent and utility resources available to Nebraska families include:
