COVID-19 Assistance Resources
Georgia Rental Assistance Program
The Georgia Department of Community Affairs began administering the State of Georgia Rental Assistance Program (GRA) in early March 2021. GRA can help renters with their past due rent and utilities. Payment will be made directly to landlords and utility providers. More information on program details and how to apply will be added to this page as soon as the online application portal is ready.
The State of Georgia received $552 million from the U.S. Treasury for the Georgia Rental Assistance Program. These funds will be administered by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA) through the Georgia Rental Assistance Program.
The Georgia Rental Assistance Program can assist with past due rent (not mortgage) and utilities. The money will be distributed directly to landlord and eligible applicants will receive up to 12 months of payment relief (up to $15,000).
