Wake County and community partners have launched the House Wake! COVID-19 Eviction Prevention Program. This next phase focuses on preventing the displacement of Wake County renters who lost income as a result of COVID-19.
The three-step program offers:
Financial assistance to tenants and landlords to cover rent shortfalls resulting from a loss of income through a partnership with Telamon Corporation;
Free legal support through a partnership with Legal Aid of North Carolina for tenants who need a lawyer to negotiate filed evictions with landlords or other legal services; and
Assistance relocating residents whose housing could not be stabilized through steps 1 or 2.
Residents are eligible if:
They are renters legally residing in Wake County;
They have a legally binding NC lease that covers the assistance period;
They have been economically impacted during the COVID-19 pandemic period of March 13 – present, resulting in the loss of income and inability to pay rent; and
They do not receive any other forms of rental assistance payments such as Housing Choice Voucher - Section 8, or senior housing or disabled housing with rental assistance subsidies.
