General Assistance Program
The Sarpy County Human Service Office administers the General Assistance Program. Persons presently residing in Sarpy County, who are interested in applying for this program, can call for additional information and/or an application.
General Assistance is intended to provide financial assistance for rent, utilities, and non-food items, depending upon the situation.
Eligibility is based on income and resources. Monthly income and resource guidelines vary based on the number of related persons in the household and current State of Nebraska poverty guidelines.
Payment is made directly to the landlord and/or utility company. Vouchers are provided to purchase non-food items at No Frills Supermarkets.
General Assistance will not be used to supplement any Federal or State Programs such as ADC, SSI, or Social Security.
