Do you know someone in our community who needs assistance?
Steps Together provides financial support to families impacted by a medical crisis that reside or are employed in SOMERSET COUNTY.
The applicant must be a dependent or have a dependent.
Financial assistance includes but is not limited to medical expenditures not covered by recipients health care insurance (medically necessary procedures, medical devices or other services), pharmacy expenses not included by recipients prescription plan, clothing, food, housing (rent or mortgage payment assistance), utilities or other expenses deemed necessary by Steps Together.
Invoices are required for all financial assistance as Steps Together will not give money directly to an applicant.
Should a family wish, Steps Together can also provide support by establishing a web presence in our Steps Together network.
Steps Together offers two levels of support.
Families can apply for a one time financial grant up to $1,500 annually. Click here for our grant application which must be completed annually.
Families with greater needs must complete the above application and provide more detailed financial information on an annual basis. This information includes the first two pages of the prior year tax return (please black out all social security numbers). Steps Together also requests a summary of non-reimbursed medical expenses and donations from other charitable organizations from the prior year. Applicants are welcome to include any additional information that was not captured in the grant application that would be important in explaining your need for financial relief. This additional documentation should be sent to Steps Together, PO BOX 5773, Hillsborough, NJ 08844 or scanned via email.
Steps Together requests the right to request additional supporting documents at any time. Any applicant unable to provide documentation to match the data provided will be immediately removed from the organization.
Levels of support beyond the one time annual grant may vary based on the financial need of different families who qualify.
What happens after I apply?
Applicants should allow 2 weeks for their application to be reviewed and 4 weeks for the processing of any grants.
A phone interview will be scheduled to review your application and decide how we can best be of assistance.
Please understand that is our desire to help every family that requests assistance but application volume varies. Please visit our resource page to see other organizations / tools that may be of assistance.
