As of May 20:
Catholic Charities has received a grant, The Challenge Grant. These funds are available to assist with past due rental payments (no deposit & no first month) and utility payments. The grant ends June 30th, so from now until June 30th, they are only helping those who meet the following criteria:

• Income must be 50% or less than Area Median income
• Must have the ability to sustain their living situation/utility bills after the assistance is given. (Not helping those who have no way to sustain their livelihood, this is meant to be a onetime, something out of ordinary caused family to fall behind kind of thing…)

They will still be taking screenings for these calls as usual, every Monday from 9-11.
