COVID rent/utility funds available for Hot Springs residents

COVID Rent Utility Assistance - Homepage News

Hot Springs residents who have experienced financial hardship related to COVID-19 and, as a result, are behind on rent or utility payments can now apply for assistance through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) CARES Act funded emergency rent and utility subsistence program being managed by Ouachita Behavioral Health and Wellness.

Eligible applicants must live inside the city limits, have proof of a COVID-related hardship – such as a layoff or reduced work hours – and meet the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s low- to moderate-household income and other requirements.  

Contact Loren Eitel-Morphew at 501-762-9038 for more information or to request an application.

Garland County residents can pick-up an application for rent and utility assistance outside the Garland County Community Services Office (CSO) at 600 West Grand Avenue, Suite 200.
