Mayoral Relief Fund

The Mayoral Relief Fund exists to provide assistance to families and individuals who are undergoing extreme financial hardship.

Every applicant's circumstances are unique. The requirement for support must be one of proven financial hardship. The applicant must have exhausted general sources of assistance, such as Work and Income, or local food banks, and their immediate family.
