Hamilton County and the City of Cincinnati, Ohio have provided homeowners impacted by Covid-19 with a lot of programs so far. One of them is the Mortgage, Property Tax and Utility Relief Program which covers mortgage, property tax, and/or utility payments and helps homeowners avoid foreclosure. The program helps residents who are at or below 65% of the Area Median Income. Applications can be found at www.513Relief.org or directly here: https://erap.hcjfs.org

Hamilton County Commissioners in partnership with the Council on Aging also developed the Senior Utility Assistance and Home Repair Program.
