The City of Hinesville Homeless Prevention Program provides assistance to currently housed applicants with past due rent or mortgage payments. The program also assists with utilities in disconnect status (water, electricity, gas). Applicants must reside within the City of Hinesville.
Please note that our programs do not provide immediate assistance and assistance is dependent upon funding availability. The process for this program requires time to complete. Programs may require that the home pass inspection before funds are issued. Additionally, property owner or utility company must agree to accept payment. Assistance funds are paid directly to the vendor from the City of Hinesville and are not released to applicants. Unit rent amount and utility allowance must be within current HUD Fair Market Rent guidelines to receive assistance.
Eligibility requirements are set by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development as well as the Georgia Department of Community Affairs. The Prevention Assistance Application is linked below and is also available in office. Note that assistance is limited and applications will be viewed in the order received. Completed applications may be submitted by ONE of the following methods. Please include full name in email subject or fax cover sheet. Submit all documents at one time. Incomplete or partial applications will not be processed.
