Cobb's Board of Commissioners approved accepting another $2 million in federal aid to help residents behind in their rental payments. Cobb was eligible for these Emergency Rental Assistance 2 funds because of the "high need" designation.

Cobb County has used five nonprofit organizations to help distribute these funds and already has distributed more than $21 million into the community. The county's efficiency in getting this money to people in need has been recognized on the national level, with our Chief Magistrate lauding the program in several White House forums.

Cobb County could receive an additional $3 million depending upon continuing need.

Money is still available. Residents behind in rental payments should visit and start the application process.
