As-of May 15, Virginia Rent Relief Program has stopped taking new applications for rental assistance. This is bad news for Virginia renters and will lead to many evictions in the coming months.

Our rent relief assisters have been hard at work for months helping those in the Charlottesville and Northern Virginia areas apply for rental assistance. They have helped secure over $3,110,000 in rental assistance for over 484 households, and are still helping with applications that were filed before the cutoff date.

Here are some things you can do if you are facing eviction for nonpayment of rent in the coming months:

The Bridges team recently canvassed local neighborhoods in South Arlington, including the Fort Henry community, to inform local families of Bridges to Independence and the services we offer at our Community Services Center in Green Valley. One of the ways we serve the community is by delivering meals straight to the doors of our elders with the help of our awesome volunteers.
