Neal Hanks Sr. Memorial Rental/Mortgage Assistance Program

To help in assisting those in our community who have to decide between paying their rent or mortgage, purchasing medication, or paying for other needs, the Neal Hanks Sr. Rental/Mortgage Assistance Program was created.

Emergency Food and Shelter – In partnership with the Buncombe County Department of Social Services, the Emergency Food and Shelter Program (formerly FEMA) provides federal funds to assist families in need of rent, mortgage payments, utility assistance and food.  This program will pay for one months rent up to $300, once a year, as funding is available.
