Mecklenburg County residents may seek assistance with rent
or utilities in person through curbside assistance or by completing this online request This application is not a
guarantee of assistance, but it is the first step in the process that may
include pre-screening, screening, document verification, confirmation of
emergency, and a phone assessment by a caseworker. For a successful online process,
applicants should have reliable access to email, be familiar with uploading
documents, and be able to receive and complete electronic documents using
DocuSign technology. Applicants without
those capabilities are encouraged to gather necessary documents and apply in
person via curbside assistance during business hours.
Due to high volume, it may take several days to move through
the process to a phone assessment to determine if you are eligible for
assistance at this time.
