Step 3: Complete the Questionnaire and Grant Application Forms.
Please note that Free Gas USA, Inc. has made some changes to our grant application procedures.
Starting August 1, 2010, gasoline grant candidates will no longer be required to submit confidential information such as income tax returns, etc., when applying for a gas grant. You are now required to have your Pastor, Case Manager or Social Worker verify your income status, proof of insurance and vehicle ownership before submitting your application. In the Referral Letter, your Pastor, Case Manager or Social Worker must state that they have reviewed the information provided, and support the submittal of your application.
Applications received without a Referral Letter will automatically be disqualified.
Remember, this gasoline grant program is established to help individuals and families that live at or below the poverty level. If you do not meet the federal governments guidelines to be classified as "poverty-stricken", don't waste our time, or yours, by submitting a grant application. It will not be processed.

Frequently Asked Questions
Question: What is a Referral Agency?
Answer: Any state or federally recognized human service agency that is charged with providing resources to low-income individuals and families. Examples of a Referral Agency include: Area Agencies on Aging, Community Action Agency, Hospital, State Welfare Organization, United Way Member Agency or Church.
Question: What if an agency refuses to give me a referral?
Answer: Try contacting another human service provider. Your local 211 Call Center is no longer recognized by Free Gas USA, Inc. as an official referral agency, because they only provide contact information to organizations that provide human resources.
