Clear Lake Township also offers Emergency Assistance, also known as EA, to alleviate the life-threatening situations of eviction or the disconnection of utilities. Clear Lake Township bases their Emergency Assistance Policy off of the "Emergency Assistance Handbook for Local Government Units".

Applicants must be a resident of Clear Lake Township and a United States Citizen or a qualified immigrant. In addition, applicants must meet financial and non-financial eligibility requirements. Typically, our EA clients are families with children. Families and individuals receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are ineligible for Emergency Assistance.

Eligible clients may receive a maximum of $250 towards avoiding eviction and disconnection of utilities. This amount is disbursed to the client by disbursing order only. Actual payment is made to the landlord or utility company.

Application packets are available by clicking here or at the Township Office. The application process can take up to 30 days for a final decision.
