The Perry Township Trustee's Office provides a service unlike any other unit of government called Township Assistance. Township Assistance is a program that allows those unfortunate residents in Perry Township, who are suffering financial hardship, the opportunity to apply for relief of their need(s) for food, clothing, shelter, and medical. Many refer to this type of service as Temporary Assistance because it is provided as a temporary or short-term remedy. Those individuals and families who apply for this assistance must prove that they are unable to provide for their needs through personal effort and that they have exhausted all other means.
Those who do not meet the requirements are referred to other programs and are provided with a list of alternative community resources. In Perry Township we facilitate partnerships with local church's and charitable organizations in the community to assist our efforts in providing services to those in need. Perry Township strives to provide assistance in the most economical means possible. The help of our community partners, supplements the use of available tax money and fills needs more needs than we are unable to provide.
