COVID Assistance Programs
Pandemic Relief for Households and Individuals
As our community navigates the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Neighborhood Place is a resource for those who have been economically impacted. In 2020, we provided more than $10 million in rent assistance to over 4,000 Louisville households through the CARES Eviction Prevention Program.
RENT ASSISTANCE - As of June 1st, all appointments are reserved. Additional appointments may become available depending on funding. Check back June 28th for updates.
The Rent Assistance Program is funded by the U.S. Treasury. To be eligible for this program, you must reside in Jefferson County, suffer financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic, be at risk for homelessness or housing instability, and have household income at or below 80% area median income. Renters receiving a subsidy are eligible for assistance with their portion.
To apply, schedule an appointment either by clicking the button above or call the automated scheduler at 502-308-3344. The appointment is to submit the application and documents to the drop box.
