Emergency Eviction Prevention

Housing Stabilization Services (HSS) provides case management and limited financial grants to support residents at-risk of homelessness.  Services includes assessment of need, emergency financial assistance, and case management to help households keep their current housing, obtain new housing, prevent utility shut-off, restore disconnected utility services, and moving/storage assistance.  Burial assistance grants are also available.  Eviction prevention grants are available to households that meet income guidelines, have received a court judgement for an eviction or "put-out" notice, and have not received an eviction prevention grant in the preceding 12 months. Households looking for long-term housing subsidies, such as a voucher, are encouraged to apply on the Housing Opportunities Commission website.Additional resources on tenant rights and responsibilities are available on the Department of Housing and Community Affairs website.The application portal for COVID Rent Relief Round 4 closed on Friday, January 13, 2023 .  If you have already submitted an application for COVID Rent Relief you will be contacted by a case worker when your application is assigned.If you are experiencing a housing emergency (eviction judgement or red and white notice from the sheriff) please call 311 to be connected with DHHS' Housing Stabilization Services to request eviction prevention assistance.Tenant's Rights and Resource Workshop sponsored by The Latino Economic Develop Center.
