South Bend launches new webpage to connect residents with assistance
The City of South Bend has launched Supporting South Bend, a webpage dedicated to connecting residents with local, state, and federal assistance, benefits, and other resources. The page displays information about each resource, eligibility requirements, and a link to the application.
The City has also partnered with Community Prime LLP to do door-to-door outreach in South Bend neighborhoods starting this month. They will provide residents with information at their doorsteps on programs and benefits that they may be eligible for, including the Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program and the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program, two programs with fast-approaching deadlines of May 16.
The Community Prime team will also provide information on South Bend’s Utility Assistance Program and will be able to sign up eligible residents. UAP is an income-based program that provides assistance to residents who struggle to pay their city utility bill.
The new web page can be found at www.southbendin.gov/support.
