Emergency Rental Assistance - Cuyahoga County

Are you having trouble paying rent due to COVID-19? This lifeline, funded by the City of Cleveland and Cuyahoga County, can help.

How does it work?

  • CHN is the entry point to access rental assistance. Depending on the nature of your financial hardship, you may be referred to EDEN for longer-term assistance, at which time you may be asked for additional information and documentation.
  • If you qualify, your landlord may receive up to three months back rent.
  • CHN will screen all applicants for other assistance programs that may help make your electric, gas and water/sewer bills more affordable.

Who qualifies?

  • Residents of the City of Cleveland and Cuyahoga County who are having difficulty making rental payments due to the economic impact of the pandemic and who meet income eligibility requirements.
  • If you qualify for rental assistance, you may be required to attend more in-depth financial counseling, provided by CHN, as a condition for payment of the rental assistance.
  • Priority is given based on criteria such as eviction status, accurate information and complete documentation.
