Every municipality in Maine has a General Assistance program (GA) that is designed to assist eligible residents with basic necessities when they are unable to do so on their own. General Assistance is intended to be a program of "last resort", other available programs, finances, or assistance programs must be utilized first before seeking GA. General Assistance is granted in voucher form only and does not pay overdue bills or security deposits. Town of Veazie General Assistance is available to Veazie residents only.
The General Assistance Program is the most accountable assistance program in the State of Maine, and applicants are required to reduce their reliance on General Assistance. This may mean searching for employment or applying for disability benefits, SNAP, TANF, and/or other state and federal benefits.
