General Assistance

Township Supervisors are mandated by State law to provide financial assistance to residents in need. Applicants for the program may not be receiving any monetary assistance from another government agency to be eligible to apply. Recipients must meet the guidelines established by the Township of Joliet and the State of Illinois. Applicants for General Assistance or Emergency Assistance must be a resident of Joliet Township and complete a written application available at the Joliet Township Government Office. The applicant will be interviewed by a Township Caseworker before eligibility can be determined.
