Guilford County has launched an emergency relief program designed to assist households that are unable to pay rent or utilities due to the pandemic.

Guilford County residents living outside the city of Greensboro can now submit an online application to receive financial help. According to a news release, nearly $8 million has been allocated to support residents throughout the county, including the city of High Point.

Another $9 million has been awarded to the City of Greensboro for a separate relief program meant just for city residents. It's expected to launch in March.

The rental assistance program is part of the Guilford Cares initiative, which has previously provided funding to support small businesses, reduce food insecurity, and boost tourism.
