COVID Related Assistance Available

posted 3/4/21 -- LCCAA is currently offering COVID-related assistance for water bills and mortgages. Rent assistance will resume during the month of March.

For all three programs, applicants must live at or below 80 percent of the Area Median Income. Your inability to pay must be related to COVID-19. Funds are available for a limited time and residents should apply as soon as the programs are opened by going to our website,

Applications for 2021 COVID Water Assistance are ongoing. If you are behind on your water/sewer bill due to COVID-19, LCCAA can pay up to three months. Click here to apply for water help.

The home must be the applicant’s primary residence. Up to three months past due payments can be made. A total of 250 applications will be accepted. Click here to apply for mortgage help.

The 2021 COVID Rent Assistance program has received new funding which will expand benefits. This program will reopen in March. Please watch our Facebook page and this web page for announcements and criteria.

For all these programs, staff time will be dedicated to processing applications. The Agency will not be taking phone calls due to staffing constraints.

Applications with all required documents will be processed on a first come, first served basis. Applications waiting on required documents will be passed over and, in fairness to other applicants in need of assistance, not processed until all documents are received. You will receive email status updates as your application is moved through processing.

You will also be contacted by an LCCAA staff member and provided with their contact information as they work to assist you. For security reasons, customers are asked not to send personal information to agency email addresses.
