Disaster Cash Assistance

There are many people without children, or otherwise wouldn’t normally be eligible for benefits. It’s a one-time payment, apply online and then be available for a follow-up call interview. Family Services can’t apply for someone or enter it into the system, but we will try to answer any questions people might have. The best start is to go to this link: https://www.washingtonconnection.org/home

Remember the state is operating virtually, so no in—person interviews or paper applications.
