Financial Assistance Still Available for Tuscaloosa City and County Renters and Landlords
September 28, 2021
City of Tuscaloosa renters and landlords are eligible for financial assistance to pay current and past due rent and utility bills through the Tuscaloosa County Emergency Rental Assistance Program. The application portal will remain open until September 30, 2022 or until all funds have been committed.
The City of Tuscaloosa’s Department of Neighborhood and Community Services provided assistance to the Tuscaloosa County Commission to create this program to aid Tuscaloosa City and County residents who have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Landlords and renters may apply for rental or utility assistance for bills dating back to March 13, 2020. Renters should first contact their landlord for enrollment in the program. Those whose landlords elect not to participate may then apply as an individual.
