People earning less than 80% of the area’s median income are eligible to apply and those earning less than 50% will be given higher priority. Renters and landlords can visit Hall County’s website for full eligibility requirements and applications.
When the portal closes, pending applications from landlords and tenants will still be processed, and Hall County’s call center will remain open to answer questions and concerns from citizens.
Applicants in need of rental or supply assistance will now be referred to the State of Georgia’s rental assistance program to ensure that they can still receive assistance if necessary.
The county has received a total of about $ 16.6 million since the program started about a year ago. The portal will close sometime in May depending on how many new applications the county receives, said Katie Crumley, a county spokeswoman. The money will probably be distributed until the beginning of June.
