Hall County anticipates the close out of its robust Emergency Rental Assistance Program in the coming months, beginning with the closing of its online application in June.
As of April 14, Hall County has delivered approximately $12.4 million in rental and utility assistance to more than 3,000 applicants as part of the program, which provided assistance to those affected financially by the COVID-19 pandemic. The program launched April 6, 2021 with funding provided by the American Rescue Plan Act.
Applicants in need of rental or utility assistance will now be directed to the State of Georgia’s rental assistance program to ensure they can still receive assistance if needed.
Once the portal closes, pending applications from landlords and tenants will still be processed, and Hall County’s call center will remain open to answer questions and concerns from citizens.
