Pima County Establishes Hotline to Help With Rental Assistance During COVID-19

The Pima County Community Action Agency has a new hotline to serve those seeking aid from the COVID-19 Rental Eviction Assistance Program funded through the Arizona Department of Housing. The hotline number is (520) 724-2505, but people are asked to go online first for eligibility information and an application.

Hotline staffers will answer questions regarding the status of an application, provide forms that are required for processing, offer direction and assistance to submit pending information, and direct applicants to other resources. After an individual applies with documentation, the Community Action Agency provides a review for accuracy and completeness before doing an initial phone interview.

The COVID-19 Rental Eviction Assistance Program is on a first-come, first-served basis, and demand is greater than available funding and capacity.
