The first stop for anyone seeking rent or mortgage assistance is the state of Iowa's Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention Program. Determine whether you are eligible to apply at https://www.iowafinance.com/covid-application/.
If you are not eligible for this program, or if you have received the full benefits available from the state program and need additional help, please call or email Gina Woolsey, Shelter House, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (319) 351-0326.
Utility assistance is also available. The state of Iowa will pay up to $2,000 per household for past-due bills for water, electricity and and natural gas from March 17 through October 31, 2020.
