Housing is health care.
And housing is essential during COVID-19, as we attempt to limit the spread of the coronovirus, work from home, do school from home, as well as worship and recreate at home.
The State of Utah, as well as Salt Lake County and Salt Lake City, have contributed funds in 2020 for COVID-19 housing relief.
What that means is, right now, millions of dollars are sitting and ready to be given to SLCo residents that are having a hard time paying rent.
Maybe you lost your job? Or your hours were cut? Or you've had a loss in revenue or clients? Or you had to quarantine and stay home without pay?
With more than 45,000 renters in SLCo, we know thousands are in need of help.
The good news is there is help. Right now.
If you, a neighbor, friend, or relative have been unable to pay rent because of COVID-19, call 801-359-2444.
The Utah Community Action hotline is open Monday-Thursday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and has language assistance.
Calling this number will setup an appointment to assess how much assistance you can receive, with up to $2,000 per month between March-December 2020.
