Community Service Block Grants Program
Western Egyptian E.O.C. has an outreach office in Monroe, Perry, and Randolph Counties. The Staff members at these offices are trained in basic information, referral and assistance to assist with problems relative to social services.
The local WEEOC Outreach Office personnel are usually the first contact individuals make with the agency when they need help. Some major programs offered directly by the offices are Weatherization, Energy Assistance, Homeless Assistance, Head Start, Tax and Insurance Assistance, Emergency Food and Shelter, Budget Counseling, and Housing Counseling If the outreach staff cannot assist directly, a referral will be made to other programs and providers.
This service is funded in part by the State of Illinois, Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity through a Community Services Block Grant.
