Have you tried contacting local rescue groups in your area for assistance? Try going to www.petfinder.com, www.adoptapet.com, or google "cat rescue (insert your city, state here)."
Every rescue has certain vets they work with-- they may be able to help you get a discount on one of their vets if you're really that strapped on funds. They also know the local low cost vet clinics that can help with standard conditions such as UTI.
Another option is to sign up for www.carecredit.com- it allows you to make small monthly payments to vets when you get a bigger vet bill or can't afford to pay it off right away.
As for UTI's, you need to work on proper nutrition to reduce the chance of recurrence AND figure out what kind of UTI does your cat have? Treatment is different for the kind of UTI he has.
First off, is your cat drinking enough water? If not, try fresh filtered water placed in different kinds of containers (steel v. plastic, etc.) in different areas around your home. Change the water daily.
Also, your cat should be fed wet food, to make sure the water is getting into their system. Part of the reason UTI's occur is not enough moisture in their diet.

Hope this helps,
For chronic pancreatitis, there is medication for it. You really need to talk to a good vet about long term treatment, medication, the best foods/supplements to feed. A lot of pet meds you can actually buy online for cheaper than at your vet w/a prescription.
