Income-tested Assistance

6.1 Income-tested Assistance

Helping those most at risk when times get tough, this program assists members facing severe, unexpected financial hardship or emergency.

This program can assist with food, telephone bills and rental assistance (for members at risk of eviction) when other help is not available. To ensure IBN’s resources continue to be available to those most in need this program requires proof of financial hardship. Members who make continued applications under this program will be referred for financial counselling.

To view a description of the program, plus benefits, exclusions/conditions and required documentation download a copy of the Community Programs Handbook.

See page 48/49 of the Handbook for more information.
