2023 Eviction Prevention Program


The Unified Government of Athens-Clarke County (ACCGov) desires to extend services related to the prevention of evictions and providing rent relief for eligible households in Athens-Clarke County in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. There is a total of $800,000 of ARPA funds available for this use. As of May 2, 2023 the Athens-Clarke County Mayor and Commission voted to award Eviction Prevention funding to Family Promise in partnership with the Ark UMC. The goal of this program is to offer a mutually beneficial solution that not only prevents homelessness, but also addresses the significant economic impact COVID-19 has had on both landlords and tenants in Athens-Clarke County. ACCGov and Family Promise are now in the contracting process for this program.
