The HOPE Fund

If you are a Sudbury resident in need of emergency help to pay rent and other essential bills, HOPEsudbury can help. We offer emergency grants up to $600 for an individual or $1,200 for a family (2 or more people) are
available to eligible residents. One grant per address per year is available, with a maximum of 5 grants.

To apply for a HOPE Fund grant, you can complete the application online or contact the Sudbury Social Work office at (978) 440-5476 or socialworker@sudbury.ma.us. The social work office will review your request and completed application and submit it (without any personally identifying information) to HOPEsudbury for approval. Once the application has been approved and all required documentation has been provided, the
HOPE Fund will send the check(s) directly to the vendor (landlord, utility company, etc.) All requests are confidential. There are no citizenship questions asked.


There just aren’t enough words to express how thankful I am for the financial assistance I received from HOPEsudbury. I’ve been in a tight spot for a while now, and the money provided by HOPEsudbury towards my costly heating bill will help immensely. I honestly never pictured myself in a position where I would need financial assistance, but as we all know life doesn’t always go as planned. With the support of HOPEsudbury I can now see a light at the end of the tunnel and get back on track financially. I will be forever grateful to HOPEsudbury and my goal is to one day give back.

With gratitude,
A very thankful and appreciative Sudbury resident
