The County Services department assists Blaine County residents with the payment of some necessary living expenses. State Statute requires that County Services be the last available resource, please see Important Information below.
All applications will require that documentation be submitted, some applications will require an interview as well as documentation.
If federal, state or other programs of assistance are available to meet the needs of a household, an eligible applicant must apply for those programs before the county may provide assistance. If denied such other assistance, the applicant must pursue available administrative appeals for those programs to the final administrative level.
If an applicant files an application for assistance and withholds or gives false or incomplete information in order to get assistance from the County that he/she is not entitled to, that person could be found guilty of a Misdemeanor.
