MISSION:To provide assistance to documented poor and needy citizens of Chickasaw County.
Assistance may include one-time assistance with rent, utilities, and medications when the person
cannot provide these items for themselves. The county may provide a “county funeral” for indigent persons.
Eligibility for General Assistance will be determined by the General Assistance Director or
Assistant Director after the person fills out an application and provides substantiating proof of need.
We are located at 910 East Main Street in New Hampton. The Chickasaw County General Assistance office is open
Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8 AM to noon (except for holidays).
