Our Fund Administrators are available to meet with you on Tuesdays and Thursdays ONLY from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm at our 101 State Street location (1st Congregational UCC). We are unable to schedule requests on any other day or times outside of these times.

ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED!

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:
Persons who are in need of assistance from the CMA must note the following requirements that are needed prior to their appointments.
- A current Driver’s License or State ID will be needed
- A copy of the actual late bill, Notice to Vacate, lease, or estimate, is needed in order to receive assistance; hand-written notes and informal lease agreements from landlords, creditors, or handwritten bills are not acceptable. Please note: Landlord/Management Company contact info (address AND phone number) ARE required. If you do not have both of these, CMA is unable to help you.
- A completed In-Take form is needed. A link to this form is here: CMA Emergency Assistance Application Form- Required
- MUST be a resident of Charlevoix County in order to qualify for assistance.
If you do not have all of the above, the CMA will be unable to assist you and your appointment will be canceled until such time as you do have the required documentation.
**Unfortunately, we do not have the facilities to be able to help the homeless. If you are homeless and seeking help, please contact the Northwest Michigan Community Action Agency in Petoskey at (800) 443-5518.**
Walk-ins are welcome but subject to the availability of staff and prior appointments. Therefore we strongly encourage appointments. In-Take forms are available online on this website. Having these forms filled out ahead of your appointment time will greatly reduce your wait and the wait of others.
Also, please be courteous about your appointment. If you are running late, please let us know as soon as possible. The same with canceling or changing an appointment. Please try to give at least 24 hours notice when canceling or changing an appointment.
IMPORTANT NOTICE! If you make an appointment and are a no-call, no-show, you may become ineligible to receive assistance in the future from CMA.
The CMA thanks you in advance for your help and cooperation during this season of need.
For any questions, you may call the CMA at 231-547-9122 ext. 204, or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
