Crawford County assistance programs.

Help for utilities, food, and housing

Additional funds have been awarded to Crawford County from the Emergency Food and Shelter National Board Program. The county will receive tens of thousands of dollars in additional assistance.

The funds will be mainly targeted to provide help with housing, such as help with rent payments and mortgages. Residents can approach many agencies to see if they can receive some assistance, including the Red Cross, the Salvation Army ((419) 562-0071), United Way ((419) 562-9076), the council on aging, Crestline Assistance and Ministries ((419) 683-4544), community action committees, family and jobs services programs. These groups will determine how grants are distributed among the emergency shelter and food programs run by these local agencies and charities in Crawford County Ohio. In the past these agencies were primarily responsible for providing utility bill assistance, meals, lodging, food, and shelter.

The leading place to turn to for help in the region is the Ohio Heartland Community Action Commission. They are the community action agency or Crawford and Bucyrus Ohio. Examples of some of the programs and resources available to qualified low income include.
