This set of questions are used as a standard measure of financial hardship. We ask these at the time you apply to gain statistical information about the financial hardship being experienced by program participants. We may use this measure again if you agree to participate in a post-program evaluation, to determine the efficacy of the program. Reviews of this nature help Vinnies work out the best way to offer assistance to those in need in the future.

We do NOT use this information to determine your eligibility for funding under DCSI Round 2.
