Be Aware of Scams

The NC HOPE Program is no longer accepting applications for rent and utility bill assistance. Beware of scams alleging that the program has reopened. Do not pay, or share any financial or personal information with anyone you do not know or trust. 

If you think you are a victim of a scam or fraud, please report the activity to the Attorney General's consumer hotline at 1-877-5-NO-SCAM or file a consumer complaint online.

If you are concerned about eviction or your landlord has already started eviction proceedings, please contact Legal Aid of NC at 1-866-219-5262 for assistance. Help for renters may be available through the HUD Rental Housing Counseling and Eviction Prevention Program.
