Has less than $150 in monthly income and less than $100 in liquid resources (cash, savings, or checking); OR
Has housing costs that are more than its monthly income and liquid resources; OR
Is a migrant or seasonal farm worker who is destitute
If you don't qualify for "expedited service" the county office has 30 days to process your application.
