If you owe back rent to your landlord and are a victim of domestic violence, you may be eligible for a "one shot" emergency grant. To qualify you need to meet eligibility criteria. Call 311 to find a local public assistance center where you can apply. If you are a victim of marital abuse, you should also contact a matrimonial attorney for legal advice on your rights to protection and keeping children safe.
