The Lemont Township Human Services Department is committed to assisting our residents in need.
The Lemont Township Human Services Department provides financial assistance and referral information to Lemont Township individuals and families during severe economic crisis.
General Assistance is a financial aid program that helps residents meet basic needs until employment or another source of income, such as Social Security, disability or public aid, is obtained. Eligibility is determined by established guidelines based on income, assets and household size. Applicants should have no other potential means of income and should have applied for all possible benefits to be eligible.
