General Relief provides limited financial aid to individuals and families. Someone who is eligible for assistance from Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) or from Supplemental Security Income (SSI) may or may not be eligible for General Relief. Because this is a local program, the types of aid available vary from locality to locality. This article contains information on eligibility and application for General Relief.
