The mission of the Supplemental Emergency Assistance Program (SEAP) is to provide assistance, through member agencies, to help meet the crisis or extraordinary needs of individuals and families of the Quad Cities who have exhausted all other means of available financial aid.
In 1989, a group of local people working in the field of direct social services met to discuss ways of providing additional money to help assist persons in crisis. Those involved recognized that there were a number of avenues of assistance already available and that these needed to be fully utilized. However, there was a general consensus that there are occasions when the full amount of help that is needed may not be available. For that reason, the group applied for a grant through the Doris and Victor Day Foundation to set up SEAP. The grant was approved and the program officially began in January 1990. The program assists individuals and families with crisis needs. The funds are used after other community resources have been exhausted, for any persons living in the Quad Cities Area, without discrimination. An agency must apply to and be approved by the SEAP membership. SEAP is a 501(c)(3) organization. All funds are received through grants, individual donations and fundraising events.
