MISSION: To provide financial assistance to poor and needy citizens of
Chickasaw County. Assistance may include temporary help with rent, utilities,
food, and medications when the person cannot provide these items for
themselves. Payment may also be made for emergency medical situations, and we
determine eligibility for persons to obtain medical assistance at University
Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City. Funeral expenses may also be paid for
indigent persons. Eligibility for these programs will be determined by the
General Assistance Director after the person fills out an application and
provides substantiating proof of need.
We are located at 24 N. Chestnut in New
Hampton. The Chickasaw County General Assistance office is open Monday 8:00am-4:30pm and T-F 8:00am-12:00pm (except for holidays).
