In The Caring Place’s effort to adequately process eligible applications before the deadline, the organization will stop accepting applications for assistance utilizing these funds specifically on Friday, December 11th.
From The Caring Place: In our best effort to adequately process eligible applications for Wilco Forward funds by Williamson County’s December 30th deadline, The Caring Place will cease accepting phone requests for assistance utilizing these funds on Friday, December 11. Any calls requesting assistance must be made by 4PM on 12/11/20 to be considered for assistance through Wilco Forward funds. Per Wilco Forward guidelines, no assistance for January rental payments will be provided.
For those applicants meeting this deadline, all requested and required paperwork must be received by The Caring Place (via email, fax or drop box) no later than 4PM on Friday, December 18.
