Because of COVID-19, please apply for assistance via email or fax.
We are happy to consider applications for rent or utilities for Buncombe County residents. Please provide the following:
- A copy of your bill
- A rental form if requesting rental assistance (this 2-page form must be completed by the landlord and can be printed from the eblencharities.org website (client resources, rental agreement form) or there is a folder holder on our back door where you can get a hard copy)
- The limit for the Emergency Assistance Program is $450. If your landlord requires more than this amount, you will need to provide a receipt or pledge verification from other agencies,
- Your photo ID
- Social security numbers for all household members
- Copies of check stubs or information on any income coming in the home including all unemployment benefits
Please collect the above items and be prepared to submit to Eblen Charities AFTER completing your phone interview with a case worker.
