Resources Unite/General Assistance

The Dubuque County Board of Supervisors has turned over responsibilities to a local non-profit to help people in need with general assistance. The county would normally handle that task, but that will now be done by Resources Unite. The supervisors voted yesterday to give Resources Unite $30,000. Executive director Josh Jasper says they’ve been talking about the transition with the county for several years. Jasper says the transition will allow them to better support people in need.
Qualifying individuals will still have to apply for assistance through the county. Resources Unite signed a one year contract with the county, with the possibility of having that contract renewed in the next fiscal year.
