Rent, mortgage and utility assistance available

| October 16, 2021

Kno-Ho-Co-Ashland Community Action Commission continues to offer assistance to households impacted by COVID-19 with past due rent or mortgage payments and to prevent utility disconnection including water and sewer disconnections.  Gas, electric and bulk fuel (propane) assistance is also available through multiple programs.

Funding appropriated to the agency expands the agency’s capability to serve those who continue to be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Income guidelines and benefit amounts vary by program. It is suggested that anyone past due with rent, mortgage or a utility contact the local office for more details.

COVID19 impact must be documented. Income documentation for all household members for the past 30 days  or 12 months, along with social security numbers, eviction notices, past due mortgage notices, water/sewer disconnection notice, utility disconnection notice, photo ID, proof of U.S. citizenship/legal residency for all household members, and other documentation must be presented. For more information or to apply, call 740-622-9801. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, and the safety and well-being of community and staff, the application process must be started via phone only, no in-person applicants.
