Direct Emergency Assistance Program

The Direct Emergency Assistance Program is designed to meet the emergency needs of residents of Leon County by providing financial assistance with rent/mortgage and utilities/fuel.  Situations arise where, due to a family crisis, loss of employment, or some other emergency, an individual or family find they are temporarily unable to meet their basic needs. The DEAP program provides temporary emergency assistance and is not on-going public assistance.
