Rental & Financial Assistance

*Please read before proceeding*

***

Thank you for applying to ZACAH. We are a 100% volunteer-run organization; there are seven members of our team, and our applications have more than tripled since the beginning of COVID. We do not screen out any applicants based on income level or proof of employment.

Our rental and financial assistance is 100% grassroots-funded. We do not have any corporate donors or grant funding. As a result, in order to maintain our funding, we work to ensure our funds are preserved for people who have nearly nowhere else to turn. For this reason, we ask that all our applicants who are eligible for emergency assistance through their county make use of these government funds before applying to ZACAH. 

 

We are doing our very best to keep up with the volume of applications, but for the time being, we are prioritizing applicants from households at immediate risk of eviction. If you are applying for unpaid rent but have not received an eviction notice, PLEASE EXPECT UP TO THREE WEEKS TO HEAR BACK.

 

If you are facing the immediate threat of eviction AND have been denied emergency assistance, to expedite processing time, please upload

1) notice of eviction

2) a copy of your denial letter from emergency assistance

If you are facing the immediate threat of eviction AND are not eligible for emergency assistance, to expedite processing time, please upload

1) notice of eviction

2) an explanation on why you are not eligible for emergency assistance

If you have been referred by a case worker, social worker or housing advocate, please include their contact information.

 

The application form is available here. All information is confidential to ZACAH volunteers. 

Please be patient with us as we work through all applications. Our commitment to you is that we will review every application thoughtfully.

If you are a county worker, social worker, donor or advocate and want to reach out to us for questions or information, you can write to, or email us, at:
