Struggling to pay your rent? We can help!

Four settlement houses in Columbus, Ohio, are offering rental assistance services to those residents being adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.


The Columbus Federation of Settlements has been awarded a $4 million grant to assist families with rent and utility assistance to prevent homelessness. The grant was awarded by the Coalition on Homelessness and Housing in Ohio (COHHIO), an organization committed to ending homelessness and to promoting decent, safe, fair, affordable housing for all, with a focus on assisting low-income and special needs populations. COHHIO began advocating for emergency rental assistance when it became evident that the pandemic-induced shutdowns would greatly impact hundreds of thousands of low-income Ohioans who were already struggling to pay the rent.


“Being secure in the knowledge that one has a place to call home is fundamentally critical for the success of any individual or family. The Columbus Federation of Settlements is strategically positioned to provide this assistance to families living in Franklin County and we’re honored to have the opportunity to help so many families in need at this time.”
