Because many West Palm Beach seniors living check-to-check, just barely able to afford medication or even able to keep the lights on, the city’s Housing Department has a program to help them.

Through a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) for the Serving Our Seniors (S.O.S.) Program, temporary help is available for critical needs to low income elderly residents.

The Program assists seniors in the event of an emergency and/or financial hard- ship. Assistance will be in the form of a one-time emergency grant not to exceed $600.00 in order to provide help with paying utilities, medical prescriptions, emergency dental care and handicapped accessibility.
