Financial Aid
 

 

In emergency situations, our Financial Aid program provides community resource information and monetary assistance for rent, utilities, identification, and medications. All funds are subject to current availability.

Rent
bar

Guests must have an eviction notice and a means of sustaining themselves during the months ahead. An average of $250 is given in one-time assistance. Click here for qualifying guidelines and a list of items to bring when requesting assistance.

Utilities
bar

Colorado’s Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP) accepts applications for energy bill payment assistance between November 1, 2016, and April 30, 2017. Applications will be processed by mail only through Discover Goodwill of Southern and Western Colorado. Click here for an application.

When denied assistance by the LEAP program, guests may apply to our utility assistance program that is primarily funded by the Energy Outreach Colorado Foundation. Click here for qualifying guidelines and a list of items to bring when requesting assistance. Please bring your LEAP denial letter with you.

Medications
bar

Persons with no insurance may be assisted in getting medications on an emergency basis. Catholic Outreach can also refer to health coverage guides from Hilltop who can help enroll people in Medicaid.

Transportation
bar

Gas cards may be available for stranded travelers passing through Grand Junction. We do not offer train tickets or bus tickets - either for travel within town or for traveling to a different city.

Identification and Documents
bar

We can help pay for out-of-state birth certificates in emergency situations.

We are referring requests for Colorado IDs and Colorado birth certificates to Grand Valley Peace & Justice. Click here for an information sheet.
