The Community Relations unit of the City of Taunton's Department of Human Services administers all programs for the Taunton Emergency Task Force, Inc. The Task Force assistance programs are targeted at basic needs assistance such as utility and fuel assistance and at varying times rental assistance may be available. Task Force funds do not assist with cell phones, cable, insurance or internet service.
All of the programs available are by grant makers (United Way) or via donations. Programs are available based on funding availability and may not be able to relieve an entire financial emergency.
