HELP FOR RENTERS
Applications are being accepted for the N.C. Housing Opportunities and Prevention of Evictions Program, which will assist eligible low- and- moderate-income renters experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19. The program provides rent and utility assistance to prevent evictions and utility disconnections. The program will assist renters who have a current household income that is 80 percent of the area median income or lower and are behind on their rent or utilities when they apply. Apply online at nc211.org/hope. Applicants who cannot access the online application can also call 2-1-1 Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. and speak with a program representative.
The #MaskUp campaign of more than 100 health systems nationwide, including Cone Health and Atrium Health, encourages Americans to stop the spread of COVID-19 by complying with social distancing, mask-wearing and hand-washing. "With the holidays upon us, it is crucial that everyone take precautions to slow the surging pandemic, including wearing masks and limiting contact with people who do not live in your home," Cone Health said in a press release. "The science has not changed. Masks slow the spread of COVID-19. Diligently washing our hands stops its transmission. And staying 6 feet apart from those we don’t live with makes it harder for the disease to spread too."
