Emergency Services, 460 Main St, 2nd floor, may assist you with a one-time payment of moving expenses if you can no longer stay in your residence due to a critical reason, including medical disability, health department order, moving from temporary to permanent housing, a significant cost savings over 2 years, or an adverse living situation affecting your family’s mental or physical health, which requires relocation.
- You may apply if you are moving from one apartment to another, moving items into storage, or moving items out of storage into a new apartment.
- Along with other common documents needed for application, you will need to provide 2 written, sealed estimates as well as verification of your critical reason for moving. If you are moving to a new apartment, you’ll also need to bring a landlord statement or lease for that new place, as well as proof of any rental subsidy you’ll be receiving (Rental Assistance, Belmont, Evergreen, etc.)
- NOTE: Moving estimates may only be obtained from companies on our Small Business List. Make sure that when you speak with the companies to do your estimate, you are clear about everything that you need moved- furniture, boxes, bags, and totes. If an item is not on the estimate, it will not be moved. Moving Assistance also does not pay for the cost of boxes or help packing your things.
