LET US PAY YOUR RENT & UTILITIES

Has COVID-19 impacted you or a member of your household?

 

You may be able to receive assistance with rent & utilities through the Emergency Rental Assistance Program.

Homelessness Prevention Grant

In 2020, CSO completed the PHFA Rent Relief program. Over 100 tenants applied for assistance in Northumberland & Columbia Counties & approximately 100 landlords.

 

There was a total of 57 households eligible in Columbia County & 25 landlords. In Northumberland County, CSO distributed funds to 57 households & 34 landlords.

 

CSO is now accepting applications for residents at risk of losing their housing in Northumberland County. Eligible individuals or families can receive up to $5,000 through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG-CV) to prevent homelessness.

 

This Resident Subsistence Program is in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It can be used to pay utility payments preventing cut-off or service and rent or mortgage payments to prevent eviction.
