Rental Assistance Available

by The Urban News

Eligible Buncombe County residents may apply more than once if additional support is needed.

After a pause in emergency rental assistance last September, Buncombe County has accepted additional state funding and is once again taking applications. Community members who need financial assistance with rent, mortgage, or utilities and have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic may apply for financial assistance. Most payments are made directly to vendors (landlords, mortgage companies, utility providers) and not to the individual.

Individuals may apply more than once if additional support is needed. This program does not cover payments for phone, cable, credit card, insurance, or anything duplicating other federal assistance programs.

Contact Buncombe County Health and Human Services at (828) 250-5500 to connect with a caseworker to start the application process.

To qualify to receive relief funds earmarked for the Housing Assistance Program, households must meet have experienced financial hardship during Covid-19 and meet the annual income limits.
