If you are in need of rent assistance in Greene County because you were affected by Covid and make less than 50% of our area’s median household wage, you may have to wait a little longer for help.

For the last couple of years Greene County has been able to team up with several non profits to distribute emergency money for renters.

That has been tabled for now and Greene County is no longer accepting new applicants for rental help.  The reason? Funds have been depleted.

The good news? This Friday Greene County authorities should find out if federal government funding has been approved. This will be, however a short term bandaid. The funds will not last long.  Estimates are those funds will last possibly 5 months before the funding ends permanently.
