Yesterday, Governor Roy Cooper announced that applications are now being accepted for the N.C. Housing Opportunities and Prevention of Evictions (HOPE) Program. This new housing stability program will provide $117 million to assist renters whose finances have been impacted by the pandemic.


“The spread of coronavirus has affected every aspect of our lives. Many have lost jobs, had work hours cut back or had to care for someone who has become ill with COVID-19,” said Governor Cooper. “By creating this program to help with rent and utility bills, we can keep people in their homes where they will be safest during this pandemic.”


North Carolinians who need rent or utility assistance can apply online for this program or call 2-1-1 to speak with a program representative. Callers can reach 2-1-1 Monday-Friday between 7 am and 6 pm.

For more information about the HOPE Program, read the press release from the Governor’s office or visit nc211.org/hope.


Governor Cooper and Dr. Cohen also urged North Carolinians to remain vigilant and follow the 3 W’s amidst rising case counts, with the state seeing its highest COVID-19 case count yesterday with 2,500 new cases.
