2023 Eviction Prevention Program


The Unified Government of Athens-Clarke County (ACCGov) desires to extend services related to the prevention of evictions and providing rent relief for eligible households in Athens-Clarke County in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. There is a total of $800,000 of ARPA funds available for this use. ACCGov anticipates only one applicant will be awarded funding to carry out the program detailed within the RFP. The goal of this program is to offer a mutually beneficial solution that not only prevents homelessness, but also addresses the significant economic impact COVID-19 has had on both landlords and tenants in Athens-Clarke County.
