DeKalb County CEO Michael Thurmond has created a Tenant-Landlord Assistance Coalition comprised of public and nonprofit partners through a $21 million grant. The coalition will provide financial relief to DeKalb renters threatened by eviction and landlords facing revenue losses—both due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The program is designed to assist eligible families that have an annual family income of 80 percent of the median income for DeKalb County. Annual family income limits are:
Family of one: $46,350
Family of two: $52,950
Family of three: $59,550
Family of four: $66,150
The online application at http://www.dekalbcountyga.gov/renthelp will go live at 9AM ON FEBRUARY 12, 2021 (FRIDAY). Eligible applicants, both tenants and landlords, are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
