Novi Youth Assistance

EMERGENCY NEEDS PROGRAM

During these uncertain times and financial hardships, Novi Youth Assistance wants you to know we are here to help!

Every youth 17 and under, who lives in the city of Novi or attends school in the Novi school district whose family is low-income, qualifies for a $150 emergency needs grant once per fiscal year.
 
If you are requesting help for rent, utilities or other bills, please include the bill and payment information with your application. Many bills can be paid electronically. If you are applying for food, gas or clothing assistance, we will provide a gift card. NYA will not write checks to individuals.
 
Please fill out a separate application for each child.  It will be quickest to scan applications to both nya@cityofnovi.org and shieldsl@oakgov.com. If you cannot scan applications, you can mail them to the Novi Civic Center located at 45175 W. Ten Mile Road, Novi, MI 48375 or use the drop box located outside the Novi Civic Center building.
 
Emergency needs requests will be forwarded from the NYA office to a committee, who will then vote on the need requested. All requests made will remain confidential.
 
Please call 248-347-0410 with any questions. We will do our best to be swift with all requests for assistance.
