FINANCIAL AWARD

This program provides financial assistance to individuals and families facing financial difficulties, by awarding funds towards basic needs such as medical expenses, utility payments and housing payments.

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

Financial awards are given to fund basic needs expenses including but not limited to shelter, basic utility, food, necessary medical, clothing, transportation, and educational needs. Applications must be complete to be considered for an award and must include bills. (copies accepted) Award payments are made directly to vendors, not to applicants.

All applicants must be Westwood residents. Our mission is to provide short-term financial assistance. The awarding process is confidential. During the months of Sept – June applications are reviewed weekly. However, during July – August applications are reviewed monthly. Financial awards are mailed directly to the company, utility, etc., not the applicant. There is a financial award limit of $1,000 per applicant per fiscal year (up to 8 per lifetime). The fiscal year runs from July 1st to June 30th. An applicant experiencing extenuating circumstances may be eligible for additional funding at the discretion of the Awarding Committee.
