Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. (ABI) and the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership (ABP), in collaboration with the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation (AVLF), are among the 10 local services providers selected to help distribute relief funds for the City of Atlanta’s Atlanta COVID-19 Emergency Rental Assistance Program. They will be responsible for distributing $2 million of emergency rental assistance to residents living in BeltLine neighborhoods.
The City of Atlanta allocated $22 million earlier this month from the Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF) to the Atlanta COVID-19 Emergency Rental Assistance Program to provide housing support to Atlantans. Administered by United Way of Greater Atlanta through a network of 10 local service providers, the program will provide financial assistance to cover past due rent, utilities, and move-in deposits as a result of impending eviction assistance to Atlanta residents.
Thanks to this partnership with AVLF, ABI and ABP are honored to support equity in and around the Atlanta BeltLine by providing economically disadvantaged residents living in BeltLine neighborhoods with information about resources such as the COVID-19 Rent and Utility Relief and assisting them through the application process.
This program is available to City of Atlanta residents with a gross current household income and income prior to March 1, 2020 below 60% Area Median Income (AMI). Each household may apply for an assistance maximum of $3,000 in a period not to exceed 3 months.
Interested applicants are invited to:
- Fill out the United Way application for financial assistance
- Select AVLF as the preferred provider
- For help with the application, leave a message at 470-588-7438 and someone will call back.
