Information you’ll need to provide

  • Most recent W2s or copies of current/previous paycheck stubs. Previous paychecks or pay stubs must be from a date before the incident that led to the need for emergency funding.
  • Lease or mortgage statement and utility bills, if applicable.
  • Photos of any damage(s) if applicable.
  • Any other documentation that you think the Southern Smoke Foundation should see to better understand your experience of loss. This could be medical bills, HOA notices, repair estimates, etc.

Helpful tips

  • Examples of need include medical bills, a car accident, weather catastrophes, family support assistance, and mental health needs.
  • Be detailed in your application. Case Managers from Southern Smoke Foundation are assigned to cases based on the urgency of the crisis and not on a first-come-first-served basis.
  • If your situation has escalated since you submitted your application, please email
