Since 2004, we have distributed over $50,000 in emergency medical financial assistance. This unique community resource is funded by donations from:
- Martha’s Vineyard Rotary Club
- Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Foundation
- Local businesses, congregations and private donors
Department of Transitional Assistance
The DTA assists people who need help with food, jobs, cash assistance, emergency shelter and domestic violence. Martha’s Vineyard does not have a local DTA office. The Access Programs functions as a liaison to the closest DTA office, in Hyannis, Massachusetts, which can be reached at 508-862-6600.
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program
Access to SNAP Program (formerly known as Food Stamps,) can be generated through the health insurance application process at the Vineyard Health Care Access Program or by calling DTA at 508-862-6600.
