COVID-19 Relief & Recovery Fund Eviction Prevention

As our community complies with the social distancing guidelines recommended by the CDC and local health organizations, additional support will be needed to help neighbors experiencing income or job loss as a result of COVID-19 activity (event/project cancellations or delays, layoffs, etc.) We have created the COVID-19 Relief & Recovery Fund to help these neighbors in need in partnership with our network of nonprofits.
 
The COVID-19 Relief & Recovery Fund is made possible by contributions from municipalities, corporations, individuals, and United Way of Denton County. Applications for financial assistance for eviction prevention from the COVID-19 Relief & Recovery Fund is for households at-risk of homelessness due to COVID-19. Applications must be submitted by an organization on behalf of the household. Individuals may NOT directly apply.
 
Note: Households only need to apply to ONE AGENCY for assistance. United Way of Denton County will not be providing direct assistance to individuals.
