LIMA — New funding has been received by West Ohio Community Action Partnership, and the agency is able to help renters on past and future payments.
Past payments to April 1, 2020, and future payments through the end of the year are available for eligible people.
To be eligible, renters needs to have an income below 80% Area Median Income, an eviction or past due notice, proof of income for the last 90 days, a lease, a form filled out by the landlord, a hardship due to the pandemic and a copy of the utilities bill showing disconnect or past due.
Applications are available at www.wocap.org. Once all documents are gathered, they can be emailed, faxed or delivered to dropboxes in the lobbies of WOCAP offices in Allen, Auglaize or Mercer counties. The applicant will then be contacted to finish the process. Checks, if issued, will be sent directly to landlords.
WOCAP reports a staffing emergency and urges patience. For details, call 419-227-2586.
