The Housing Opportunities and Prevention of Evictions (HOPE) Program is a new statewide initiative that may provide rent and utility assistance to eligible low- and moderate-income renters experiencing financial hardship due to the economic effects of COVID-19.
The new program will help prevent evictions and utility disconnections in order to promote housing stability during the ongoing pandemic. HOPE is an initiative of the NC Office of Recovery and Resiliency, a division of the North Carolina Department of Public Safety.
The HOPE Program is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Community Development Block Grant program – Coronavirus and the U.S. Department of the Treasury Coronavirus Relief Funds.

Preventing Potential Eviction:
The Centers for Disease Control has issued a national moratorium on evictions through December 31, 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. To obtain this protection from eviction for your household, you MUST complete the Tenant Declaration Form and deliver a copy of the form to your landlord. The form can be delivered by email, United States Mail, or in person. More information on this eviction protection is available at https://nc211.org/2020/09/15/temporary-eviction-moratorium/.
Preventing Potential Utility Disconnection:
The most important step you can take in preventing the disconnection of your utilities is communicating with your utility provider. We encourage you to call your provider to discuss potential payment plans or other options to prevent disconnection of your utilities. Additional information on other utility assistance resources can be found at https://nc211.org/category/utilities/.
Spearheaded by the Hayden-Harman Foundation, the High Point Resources website is a collaboration of Resilience High Point, the United Way of Greater High Point, the Greater High Point Food Alliance, Business High Point, and the City of High Point.
The website was designed to provide the most up-to-date information for High Point residents concerning the impacts and changes that are the result of COVID-19. After the COVID-19 crisis has passed, the site will be re-oriented to provide access to the various types of resources that are available to High Point residents.
