Crisis Intervention Program Opens July 1, 2019

Wayne County, NC – Applications for the Crisis Intervention Program will be taken beginning July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020 or until the allocation is exhausted. The Crisis Intervention Program is a Federally funded program that assists individuals and families who are experiencing a heating or cooling related crisis. 

A household is considered to be in a crisis if it is currently experiencing or is in danger of experiencing a life threatening or health related emergency and sufficient, timely and appropriate assistance is not available from any other source. Life threatening is defined as a household which has no heating or cooling source or has a disconnect notice for their primary heating or cooling service and the health or well being of a household member would be in danger if the heating or cooling crisis was not alleviated.

To apply, visit the Borden Building at 100 S. James Street in Goldsboro weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Free parking is available on James Street across from the Borden Building and please be advised that using “Private Parking Lots” may result in your car being towed at the owner’s expense. Applicants should bring a valid ID, social security numbers for everyone in the household, electric utility disconnection or final notice (cut off date must be within 7 days of application date), and verification of all income received in the household (including SSI/SSA and Child Support.) If you have questions regarding this program, contact Wayne County Department of Social Services at 919-580-4034.
