Rent/Mortgage Assistance

Comprehensive Emergency Assistance Program

Emergencies happen. If something is preventing you from paying rent or your mortgage, the Comprehensive Emergency Assistance Program (CEAP) can help. CEAP is designed to support families through tough times and keep them from losing their homes through eviction, foreclosures, or other circumstances. If you have experienced an unexpected, uncontrollable circumstance like a medical bill in the past 180 days, or loss of employment within the past 12 months you may qualify for CEAP assistance.

Eligible households can receive up to $2500 once per program year.
