This project is made possible through a $1 million grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to pilot a rural eviction relief program. The pilot program aims to combat the housing crisis disproportionately affecting low and extremely low-income Ohioans. With these grant funds, ABLE will allocate new resources to focus on seven rural counties with a high population of households earning less than $35,000: Allen (42%), Auglaize (38%), Champaign (27%), Clark (37%), Logan (20%), Mercer (33%), and Miami (38%).
*The Tenant Information Hotline is an information only hotline and cannot provide legal advice. The Hotline may transfer callers to the Legal Aid Intake Line in addition to providing information about landlord and tenant obligations. For those living in qualifying areas, full representation at eviction may be available. More limited advice and counsel may also be available for those who qualify. For more information, please call the Hotline or the Legal Aid Intake Line.
