Services

Providing aid to low-­income residents of New Orleans and Southeast Louisiana.

All programs offered by TCA are eligible for individuals and families that are low to moderate income. Each program has its own individual income eligibility requirements. A limited number of programs serve age restrictions such as senior citizen services or youth services but they must also meet the income eligibility requirements. Community Services presently defined eligibility as up to 125% of the poverty level.
