South Central Community Action Programs - Adams - Emergency Services
Residents of Adams County struggling with household expenses are able to seek assistance through the SCCAP Emergency Services Program. There are two ways help is available:

#1. Adams Electric Co-op (PHH) Project Helping Hands (PHH) assists Adams Electric Co-op customers who demonstrate a genuine need for assistance. SCCAP can help up to $250.00, but you must pay at least 25% of your due bill to be eligible. This credit is available only one time a year.
#2. A Salvation Army program helps with assistance with various bills including:
  • rent (only helps with late rent bills/payments)
    • utilities (not covered by PHH)
    • prescription expense assistance
      NOTE: With this tool the MAXIMUM amount of financial assistance available is a total combination of $200 per year. The year time-frame is calculated from the date you received financial assistance.
