Neighbor Financial Assistance Initiative (NFAI)


CitySquare has partnered with United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, the City of Dallas, Community Council of Greater Dallas, and private donors to launch the CitySquare Neighbor Financial Assistance Initiative (NFAI) to provide emergency funds through our Financial Empowerment program.


If you or someone you know is in need of emergency funds, please read the following information.    

COVID-19 Assistance Application
CitySquare is aware of the economic hardships many of our neighbors face. These hardship have only been further worsened due to COVID-19. For this reason, NFAI hopes to bring aid to many neighbors.
