Submitting Bills

  • The bills must only be in YOUR NAME or your spouse’s name. Bills in someone else’s name, even if in the same household will NOT be considered.
  • The bill must show your name, account number, current balance due, current due date, and the vendor’s name and check payment address. These can usually be found on the first page of the bill statement.
  • We cannot use a printout of your “statement of account” to pay bills.
  • If you are requesting help with partial rent, please provide a copy of your lease that shows your name, the owner’s name, owner’s mailing address, rent due, and the signature page.
  • Failure to provide bills/lease with the required information will delay the process of your request.

*Bayside will determine what bills, if any, will be paid.
