GWINNETT COUNTY BEGINS PREPARATIONS TO CLOSE OUT SUCCESSFUL RENTAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
Application portals will begin closing in November
(Lawrenceville, Ga., Oct. 25, 2022) – The portal for Gwinnett County’s successful emergency rental assistance program, Project RESET 2.0, will soon close as the County reaches its full commitment.
In April 2021, Gwinnett County was tasked with spending a little more than $55 million from the federal Emergency Rental Assistance Program with the goal of helping those directly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Recognized by the U.S. Treasury as a top performer, the County received an additional $38.9 million to support its Project RESET 2.0 emergency rental and utility assistance program.
To date, Gwinnett has processed nearly $79.3 million in financial assistance for 6,909 households ensuring that 17,164 individuals in Gwinnett County did not have to face an eviction or utility disconnection.
Gwinnett residents in need of assistance after the applicant portal closes are encouraged to seek assistance from the Georgia Rental Assistance Program while that portal is available or from local agencies providing assistance within our community.
If you are experiencing an urgent need and would like to be connected to nearby services, please contact Gwinnett’s OneStop 4 Help team via phone at 770.822.8850 or by completing an Assistance Request Form.
