General Assistance Program

The Dot Foundation General Assistance Program is designed to help needy families pay for essential needs while working to achieve self-sufficiency. General assistance is provided for a specific need (groceries, utility payments, clothing, child care, etc.) and will be paid to the organization providing the goods or services on behalf of the individual. No funds will be distributed to the applicant. 

General Assistance Application Guidelines:

  • A separate application should be filled out for each individual fund request.
  • Applications will be reviewed and accepted once per month.
  • Application acceptance is dependent on need and accessible funding.
  • An email or phone number is required for application to be approved.
