  • Counseling on household budgeting and safe and affordable rental practices 
  • Connecting clients with community resources

COVID-19 Assistance

Are you worried about paying your rent because of COVID-19? ESOP can help.

Who qualifies?

Residents of the City of Cleveland and Cuyahoga County that have been impacted by COVID-19, who are low to moderate income, have experienced unemployment and/or a reduction in household income are encouraged to apply.

If you qualify for rental assistance, you may be required to attend more in-depth financial counseling, provided at no cost to you from ESOP, as a condition for payment of the rental assistance.

Priority is given based on criteria such as eviction status, accurate information and complete documentation.

What will you need to provide?

  • Photo ID for all adults in the home
  • Social security cards for all household members
  • Proof of income (tax returns, paystubs or fixed income benefit award letter)
  • Rental/lease agreement
  • Proof of citizenship
  • Copies of utility bills
     

To learn how ESOP can help, call us at 216.361.0718 or email esopreceptionist@benrose.org.
