Emergency Housing Assistance
The new GLCAP Emergency Housing Assistance program offers help for households that have had difficulty making mortgage or rent payments due to COVID-19.
Help for residents in need
The EHA program is grant-funded and can provide up to three consecutive months of rent or mortgage payments occurring on or after March 1, 2020, with no repayment required. Assistance is now available in the following counties and communities:
- City of Fostoria
- Erie County (excluding City of Sandusky)
- Hancock County
- Huron County
- Lucas County (excluding City of Toledo)
- Lorain County (excluding cities of Elyria and Lorain)
- Sandusky County
- Seneca County
Eligible households must be at or below 80 percent of area median income (AMI), which varies depending on the county of residence (see below for details). Households will be served on a first-come, first-served basis. Households will need to complete an EHA application, and provide documentation of income, documentation of past-due housing payments, and proof of job loss or lay-off, or other hardships due to COVID-19.
