The Town of Wilton Welfare program was established to fill an emergency need until something else happens such as employment, State Aid, Social Security, etc. We are here to assist in a temporary capacity only. We will assist in directing you to other agencies that can better accommodate your particular needs on a longer term basis. Our assistance is not intended to subsidize costs for someone living beyond one’s means.
Each person deserves dedicated time and attention to address individual needs. In order to accomplish this, appointments are required. Please be guided by the times that are available for appointments and be respectful of the need to wait for the appointment and the requirement for the necessary documentation.
If the Town is able to provide financial assistance, reimbursement is expected at a time when it is not a hardship to the client. In the case of homeowners, be mindful that a lien will be placed on your property for the amount of the assistance.
In order to qualify for Town Assistance, there are financial criteria, as well as non-financial requirements. The applicant must stay in compliance with Town Welfare and State Welfare guidelines if assistance is to continue.
It is the responsibility of the applicant to make an appointment every time assistance is requested.
