COVID- 19 Fund

This fund is for those suffering a loss of wages or extraordinary costs associated with the COVID-19 situation only, which began on March 17.  

CALL OUR OFFICE AT 903-236-9211 TO SEE IF YOU QUALIFY FOR ASSISTANCE. 

QUESTIONS ABOUT WHO WE HELP?

  • Individuals who have lost work/hours or been laid off due to the Coronavirus situation. Bills that are already past due prior to March will not fit with this fund. Proof of need is required.

  • Individuals who have extraordinary expenses due to the Coronavirus situation, and this has jeopardized their budget. (ie. paying for licensed childcare provider for a child that would normally be in school so you can go to work) 

  • Individuals who live in Gregg County.

HOW DO WE PAY OUT?

  • Greater Longview United Way pays the vendor of the bill directly such as the landlord (with w-9) or the corporation that provides the utilities. Applicants do not receive the payments.

  • Greater Longview United Way does not pay nonessential bills such as cable, payday or cell phone bills.
