Get Help with Rent

Applications for rent assistance are now closed.  If you are behind in rent, please complete this 1 minute survey and we will contact you when more funds become available to determine your eligibility.

Since April 2020, United Way has provided rent assistance to more than 10,000 households impacted by the COVID-19 health crisis.

We know that thousands more are still in need. We are working hard to raise additional money to help prevent wide-spread homelessness once the state eviction moratorium lifts. To make a donation, go here or if you need help with rent, take the survey.

New federal and state funding for rent assistance will be available in the spring of 2021. We will update this webpage as more information becomes available.
