The Emergency Housing Assistance Program has re-opened to City of Atlanta residents. Emergency Rental Assistance Program funds are available for rent, utilities and rent deposit based on participant eligibility. Under the current funding policy, an Applicant can receive up to 15 months of rent and/or utility assistance. If you have received funding in the past, then those funded months count towards the maximum number of 15 months. Applications may take up to 30 days to be processed for payment. You can apply for funding by clicking the link below to begin your application. Please note that United Way is using a new application system so all applicants must complete a new application, even if you've received funding in the past.
