The County General Assistance Program is a repayable program that helps indigent persons meet basic needs by providing vouchers for housing, utilities, personal needs and transportation. The program has four components: non-residents needing transportation to return to their place of residence; disabled people who need support until their Social Security benefits are awarded; people without jobs; and burial for the indigent.
How Do I Apply for General Assistance?
Apply by phone, in person, or via US Mail. Completed applications and questions can be directed to your nearest El Dorado County Health and Human Services Agency office.
