The HOPE Program is now accepting applications in 88 North Carolina counties. There are also 12 counties that are managing local pandemic-related rent and utility assistance programs. If you are a renter in one of these 12 counties, you should apply to the local program instead of the HOPE Program. Information about local programs is shown below.

In addition, the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, Coharie Tribe, Haliwa-Saponi Indian Tribe, Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina and Waccamaw-Siouan Tribe are offering rent and assistance programs for tribal members financially impacted by the pandemic. If you a registered member of one of these tribes, you should apply to your tribal government’s program instead of the HOPE Program.
