Demand for assistance with rent and utilities continues to grow. Each month, approximately 20 households receive rent or utility assistance, if funding is available. Individuals seeking assistance must provide proof of residence, identity, and income, and a copy of the delinquent bill. Payments are made directly to landlords or utility companies.
Individuals seeking assistance should call 816-581-4781 at 8 a.m. on the last working day of the month. Rent and utility assistance are not provided on a walk-in basis or by phone at any other time.
