City Rent, Mortgage and Utility Assistance Applications Closed
The City of Pensacola Community Development Block Grant-Coronavirus rent, mortgage and utility assistance program is no longer accepting applications. Due to the high volume of applications submitted, the City Housing Department has committed all available grant funding.
The city initially launched mortgage and utility assistance for homeowners in February 2022 and added rental and utility assistance for renters in June 2023. Funding for the program was provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to assist low-income households facing hardships in relation to COVID-19. To date, the city has assisted 72 households with rent, mortgage and utility assistance through this program.
Residents with applications already submitted will have their requests reviewed for eligibility. However, there is no guarantee that an application will be funded due to limited remaining funds. Applicants are encouraged to check the Neighborly portal for status updates and review email communications from City Housing staff.
City of Pensacola residents in need of mortgage, rent or utility assistance may call 2-1-1 for referrals to other agencies.
