WorkFirst Emergency housing assistance

The WorkFirst Emergency Housing Assistance Program serves Pitt County families whose income is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level, and who are facing eviction and/or homelessness.

Applicants must live in Pitt County, have a minor child in the home and have income.

Applicants may qualify for assistance with back rent or for security deposits and/or first month’s rent when moving into new arrangements to avoid homelessness.

Assistance is not guaranteed.  Applicants may receive assistance from this program one time only.

The mission of the program is to assist families in acquiring and maintaining housing self-sufficiency in order to avoid eviction and homelessness.

Applicants must also be able to demonstrate an ability to maintain the living arrangements on an ongoing basis once any arrearages are cleared.  A typical assessment is that rent cannot exceed 35% of the applicant’s income.
Applicants may call Community Crossroads at 252-752-0829 for more information and to make an appointment.
