What is General Relief?
Some communities offer an optional General Relief (GR) Program. GR gives you either ongoing or emergency help. Think of GR as a last resort, when you have no other means. GR is paid for through state and local funding. GR may help with:
- Medical or dental services
- Burial expenses
- Assistance for unattached children
- Temporary assistance
Where do I apply and find out more?
To find out about GR, call your local department of social services.
