• Middlesex Township
• South Middleton Township
• North Middleton Township

Investigation will be performed to determine if the applicant qualifies for any other program or assistance before Todd Baird Lindsey Devlin Foundation provides aid. This will prevent a duplication of services and allow the Foundation to provide assistance solely to individuals who are unable to obtain the necessary help anywhere else.  The Board of Trustees reviews all applications and makes the final determination regarding amount and duration of benefits.  All decisions made by the Board of Trustees are final.


 * These above amounts are subject to change.
