COMPASS @ Broad Street Presbyterian Church is helping Franklin County Ohio residents remain in their homes during the Pandemic
COMPASS is proud to be among 26 nonprofit agencies in Franklin County that received federal COVID-19 relief funding in the fall of 2021 under the Columbus Department of Development Stable Housing Initiative. Upon successfully distributing these funds we were among 12 agencies that received additional emergency rental assistance (ERA) funds.
According to the city of Columbus news release, “The U.S. Treasury has awarded more the $47 million to the City of Columbus to help combat housing instability during the pandemic. These emergency rental assistance funds are being distributed through the Stable Housing Initiative partners, as well as IMPACT Community Action and the Columbus Urban League.
“With this second round of funds, we will aim to connect families with additional supportive services,” said Robin Green, Director of Broad Street Presbyterian Church’s COMPASS program. “We’re excited about this round of City funding that allows us to continue providing rental/utility assistance and recommend supportive services for greater stabilization. We are honored to have been selected to participate in helping our Central Ohio neighbors.”
Most organizations are waiting with anticipation of receiving reallocated funds soon. Currently IMPACT is the main agency that yet has funding available through the end of the 2022.
