Earlier this year, the Town established a relief fund designed to provide direct and essential support to Brewster residents whose health and well-being are most immediately impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. The goal of this fund is to help meet the basic needs of our residents faced with financial challenges related to housing, medical bills, utilities, etc.
To qualify for assistance, residents must meet certain financial eligibility criteria based on established federal standards and must have lived in town for at least 3 months. Brewster Council on Aging and Housing staff will assist residents in completing the application process, review completed applications, and determine program eligibility. Requests for financial assistance from eligible residents will then be voted on by the Brewster COVID Relief Fund Committee on a regular basis. The identity of applicants will be kept confidential throughout the process. Payments will be made directly to the appropriate vendor.
Thanks to the generous support of our residents, over $27,000 has been raised to date and is now available for distribution. Residents interested in donating to this tax deductible relief fund can click here.
