Having Trouble Paying Your Water Bill, Rent, or Mortgage? We're Here to Help.
The Home Relief Fund 2020 works to help renters and homeowners get the assistance they need to avoid water shutoff, eviction, and/or foreclosure. The Home Relief Fund 2020 is administered by IMPACT Community Action (IMPACT) and funded by the State of Ohio through the CARES Act.
Am I Eligible?
You may qualify if you can answer yes to the following questions.
Every household's situation is different, so the amount of
assistance you may receive will be specific to your needs and sustainability.
Funding is awarded on a first come - first completed basis. Please have all your information and documents ready to ensure faster processing of your application.
If you are a renter, make sure the amount you request will be accepted by your landlord. If they challenge the amount, it can delay your application's processing.

Depending on your circumstances, The Home Relief Fund 2020 may:
Bring your delinquent rent, water bill, first mortgage, or second mortgage current.
Make your November or December 2020 payment

How Do I Apply?
After you answer some eligibility questions, you must complete an application for assistance and gather some documentation.
What Happens Next?
If you qualify for assistance, IMPACT will request approval from your property manager or pay your lender/servicer using your payment coupon. If your property manager approves, IMPACT will send payments directly to them to bring your rent current.
What Else Do I Need to Know?
IMPACT works with nonprofit groups and does not charge a fee for its services. Beware of calls and other solicitations from companies offering to assist you in return for payment. If you are not sure whether an agency is legitimate, call IMAPCT HOPE Fund at 833-242-4673.
