Get help

We are here to help support Audrain residents during tough times. Through our Uplift Clearinghouse, Uplift Mid-MO offers funding opportunities to qualifying clients for a variety of needs including rental assistance, deposit assistance, non-electric utility payments, and other unexpected costs. If a client is not sustainable, we will work with them to remove barriers and become sustainable long-term through our Caring Connection program.

Here are some general guidelines we use to determine if a person qualifies for financial assistance:
  • Must be an Audrain County Resident
  • Must be on the lease or account requiring assistance
  • Must have sustainable income (we essentially want to see a balanced, not a negative budget)
    • If the client doesn’t have a sustainable income, mentorship is offered in the following areas:
      • Budget
      • Career
      • Resource acquisition
  • The household must not have received financial assistance from Uplift in the past calendar year.
  • For security deposit assistance, households may only receive this kind of assistance once.
