Safe & Affordable Housing
- Basic Info
As the State’s housing agency, our goal at DCA is to provide every Georgia citizen the opportunity to have access to safe and affordable housing, no matter their community or income. A community’s housing options are key building blocks in the community fabric, and we work with local governments, housing authorities, for-profit and non-profit developers, community groups, and landlords statewide to meet the housing and community needs of all Georgians.
The CDC Eviction Moratorium has been extended until June 30, 2021, meaning that no one should be evicted solely for non-payment of rent until that date. Visit GeorgiaLegalAid.org for more information. Some local communities are offering rental assistance with CARES Act Coronavirus Relief (or other) funds. Constituents can contact their local City or County government to see if funds are available for rental assistance. Constituents can also reach out to their local United Way by dialing 2-1-1 for updated information on available rental assistance.
DCA is currently providing rental assistance through the State of Georgia Rental Assistance Program in communities that did not receive their own funding. The FAQ page on the State of Georgia Rental Assistance Program has information on how to access rental assistance in areas not covered by the State of Georgia Rental Assistance Program.
