COVID-19 Rental Assistance

Please note, the emergency rental assistance program has ended. CHN received thousands of applications in the final days of the program which were processed on a first-come, first-served basis.

This was a temporary federal program authorized by Congress and signed into law in March 2020 in response to the COVID-19 crisis. CHN contracted with the City of Cleveland and Cuyahoga County to administer this 30-month program, which ended in December of 2022. Funding eligibility required a COVID-related hardship and priority was given to extremely low-income applicants and those facing imminent eviction, according to guidelines set by the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

We understand the end of any assistance program is difficult and we thank you for your understanding.
