Hocking Athens Perry Community Action, on behalf of the Village of Chauncey, will begin accepting applications on August 26th, 2020 for the Emergency Relief Grant Program. This program is a rental, mortgage, and utility assistance program available to village residents who may be experiencing financial hardship as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
Assistance can provide up to $1,000 or one month (whichever is less) of emergency rent, mortgage, or utility assistance for households who are:
- struggling to pay their rent, mortgage, or utilities due to loss of employment or other COVID-19 related impacts, and are a resident of the Village of Chauncey
- provide documentation of job loss, reduced hours, layoff, or other hardship due to COVID-19
- have a documented past due rent, mortgage, or utility payment
Applying for the Grant Program does not guarantee assistance. Funds will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis until September 25th, 2020, or until all funds are exhausted. This assistance is not available to businesses.
