The COVID-19 pandemic has created unique challenges, but the city is committed to staying the course with support from the Bloomberg Philanthropies American Cities Climate Challenge.

City of Charlotte Housing & Neighborhood Services

Since April, 1500+ households have received $1.4M in emergency housing assistance as part of the COVID-19 Rental and Mortgage Relief program (RAMP CLT). An additional $8M from the CARES Act is now available.

Those who make 80 percent or less of the area median income who face a COVID-19 hardship (job loss, wage reduction, illness, childcare challenges) and can’t make housing payments can apply. Rental payments are made directly to landlords and property managers, so in order to receive funding, landlords and property managers must register as part of the program.

Long-term hotel guests (30+ days) who can’t pay the hotel bill due to COVID-19 can apply for assistance as well.

A program rep will work one-on-one with all applicants to determine their eligibility for each of these programs. More information is available at rampclt.com. Rampclt.com also provides information and resources for those facing eviction.

The Charlotte Area Transit Center will receive a $3.7 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation as part of its Low or No Emission (Low-No) Grant Program. CATS will use the funds to purchase six battery-electric buses with dedicated charging stations and provide maintenance and first responder training for the new technology.

The buses are expected to run the Route 5 Sprinter, connecting the Charlotte Transportation Center to the Charlotte Douglas International Airport - CLT. “CATS has made a commitment to reduce emissions and invest in battery electric vehicles as part of the Strategic Energy Action Plan and American Cities Climate Challenge. This grant is a great first step. We’re excited to continue our investment in sustainable transit as battery electric bus technology advances,” said CATS Chief Executive Officer, John Lewis.

Nationwide, 41 projects will receive funding, totaling approximately $130 million. “This is another great example of Charlotte leading by example in building a climate-resilient future, made possible through a collaborative citywide strategy and approach.” said Sarah Hazel, interim chief officer of Resiliency & Sustainability.
