Louisville Metro Office of Resilience and Community Services is proud to administer the Eviction Prevention Assistance program to help individuals and families experiencing the threat of eviction.

This program is designed to assist eligible households who have a pending court eviction, or a past due notice from their landlord, related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Thanks to the federal CARES Act and CARES funding via HUD Entitlement grants, up to three months rental assistance is available to help eligible households. Funds are paid directly to the landlord and will be distributed on a first come, first served basis until available funding is expended.

This automated scheduler will allow you to schedule an appointment to apply for this assistance. The application process will be conducted by phone with a staff member on the day of your appointment at one of our Neighborhood Place sites that you select. We are not seeing clients face-to-face at this time.

Resilience and Community Services and Neighborhood Place facilities are temporarily closed for walk-in clients so this application process will need to be initiated by phone. Your worker will then assess your eligibility and then explain how to submit required documentation by email, or utilizing a secure Drop Box in front of the Neighborhood Place site that you select.

Please read the entire message to receive the required confirmation number to ensure that your appointment is scheduled; if you do not finish the entire process your appointment may not be saved.

Have a pen and paper ready to write down the confirmation number, and also be prepared to enter the 10-digits for a working phone number that you can be reached at the day and time of your phone appointment and the last four digits of your social security number or ITIN number.

Please also see the required documentation at the bottom of this page. Our staff member will also discuss the required documentation during your phone appointment.
