RENTAL ASSISTANCE PROJECT

This short-term project is a DELCO -Emergency  Rental Assistance, Application Support Project, which was launched in response to the economic impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic. The project aimed to assist low-income renters at risk of eviction due to loss of income. The project provided application assistance, education, and case management services to renters in need.

The Emergency Rental Assistance Application Support Project successfully assisted low-income renters at risk of eviction due to loss of income. The project’s combination of application assistance, education, and case management services was effective in helping renters access rental assistance and other resources.
