COVID-19 ASSISTANCEApply for COVID-19 assistance Non-essential bills such as cable or payday loans do not qualify. Please contact the United Way office first to find out what type of requests can be processed.Payments are issued directly to vendors - applicants do not receive payments, and vendors must be willing to accept our form of available payment options. This will determine if an application can be processed, and you will be contacted if an issue occurs. It is best for you to first contact your vendor (landlord, mortgage company, utility company, etc.) to verify if they can accept a VISA payment over the phone or a mailed check which goes out on the 15th or 30th of each month.Applicants who qualify can only be assisted one time per year through the United Way Emergency Fund.The available amount for each request is capped based on availability of funds, and typically we can’t cover an entire bill for the rent, mortgage, or utility. Other needs are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.Verification Do you acknowledge that you already called 2-1-1 for resources?Consent* YesDo you give permission to the United Way of Bay County (Michigan) to use your information relevant to this application to contact past or present employers and relevant agencies?
