If you live in Fairfax County and are in need of critical financial assistance because of the COVID-19 pandemic, CALL Fairfax County at 703-222-0880 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Herndon-Reston FISH is working with the County to help residents pay for rent, utilities, prescription medicine, and other expenses. When you call the County, social workers will collect your information, assess your situation, and send a referral to one of the County nonprofit partners, like FISH, to provide financial help.

As in the past, if you are in financial crisis for a non-COVID-19 related problem and live in the Herndon-Reston area, you can still call 703-222-0880 for assistance. The County will assess your need and may refer your case to FISH for financial assistance even if your situation does not qualify under the new County program. 

FISH cannot help you without a referral, so to avoid delays, please call the number above rather than calling or emailing us.

If you live outside of Fairfax County call 211 for advice on health and human services available throughout Virginia.

New Health Coverage for Adults — Enrollment began 2019

Starting in 2019, more adults living in Virginia have access to quality low-cost health coverage because of an expansion in the Medicaid program.


The rules have changed, and thousands of Virginians aged 19 to 64 are able to sign up for new health coverage. People who have annual income below 138 percent of the Federal Poverty Level, including childless adults, may be eligible. For example, that's $17,609 per year for a single adult or $29,974 for a family of three. To see if you might be eligible, please visit Cover Virginia's Eligibility Screening Tool.
