City's Resilience and Community Services Launches New Online Screening Tool
"Am I Eligible" screens for programs and services
Today Louisville Metro Office of Resilience and Community Services (RCS) launched "Am I Eligible", a new online screening tool for Louisville residents. “Am I Eligible” invites individuals to complete a brief online survey to determine which RCS programs and services are available to them.
This tool is featured on the RCS homepage at https://louisvilleky.gov/government/resilience-and-community-services or can be accessed at https://amieligible.louisvilleky.gov/. Survey participants are asked to answer questions related to household size and monthly income; whether or not there are children present in the household; is there a disability; as well as what programs are of interest.
Based on the answers to the questions, participants receive a customized list of programs and services for which they may be eligible including educational scholarships, housing and financial assistance, help starting a microbusiness, assistance with budgeting or opening a bank account, and more.
“Am I Eligible” can be completed anonymously or participants have the option of submitting their name, contact information as well as selecting a Neighborhood Place most convenient for them. An RCS staff member assigned to the designated Neighborhood Place will then contact the participant by phone or email for further follow-up.
There are eight Neighborhood Place sites at the following locations:
- Bridges of Hope, 1411 Algonquin Pkwy., 40210
- Charmoli, 200 Juneau Dr., 40243
- First Neighborhood Place, 1503 Rangeland Rd.,, 40216
- Greater Cane Run Area, 3410 Lees Lane, 40210
- NorthWest, 4018 W. Market St., 40212
- South Central, 4255 Hazelwood Ave., 40215
- South Jefferson Fairdale, 1000 Neighborhood Pl., Fairdale, KY 40118
- Ujima, 3610 Bohne Ave., 40211
“Our goal with introducing "Am I Eligible" is to make RCS’ programs and services as accessible as possible for the community we serve", stated Gena Redmon, director of the Office of Resilience and Community Services. "We place a high priority on customer service in our agency and will continue to seek out new and innovative ways to deliver services.”
