Township offers financial aid

Unemployed, typically single, non-dependent, adults seeking employment or applying for Social Security Disability Insurance may be eligible for monthly financial aid and other assistance through Township General Assistance (GA).

Applicants must be Oak Park residents with no, or very low, income and liquid assets and not be eligible for other government-sponsored assistance. Able GA clients are required to seek volunteer work for at least eight hours monthly to maintain personal and work skills for continuity in the job search.

Additional assistance for GA clients this spring includes an April 30 workshop on how to market yourself and a May 28 job fair.

Call 708.383.8005 or visit for more information.
