Nantucket Food Fuel Rental Assistance


The Nantucket Interfaith Council d/b/a Nantucket Food, Fuel, Rental Assistance operates three community outreach programs to assist  lower and no income island residents  in need of food, shelter and fuel assistance.

The mission of the Nantucket Food Fuel Rental Assistance is to assist residents who face a period of financial insecurity and cannot otherwise provide food or shelter or heat for themselves and their families.

These services provide assistance by making available supplemental nutritious food, help with rental payments to avoid loss of their homes or to move into stable housing, and /or fuel assistance to avoid having no heat during the winter season. Our goal is to keep island workers and residents, so vital to all of our existence, living here on the island to provide services we all need and use on a daily basis.

These services are provided to qualified individuals in a manner expressing care and concern for those needing help and are handled in confidentiality without regard to race, sex, age, creed, religious affiliation or sexual orientation.
