ACO Application for Collin County Residents

We will review your application and documents. We will contact you within 3-5 business days regarding your application.

Please be aware that once all the correct documents have been submitted, you will be sent an email with a link to set up a meeting with a Case Director. At the time of the meeting, the Case Director will determine the type and amount of financial assistance we will be able to assist with, if found eligible.

It is important to note that financial assistance is not always guaranteed. However, you may be offered other types of non-financial assistance or resources instead.

All Community Outreach is currently focusing on assisting with utilities during this time of higher than usual utility costs to ensure the health and well-being for those in their homes, in addition to our services to fight hunger, provide household essential items, and offer programs for education and employment.
