What is it

The City of Savannah CARES Act Fund at United Way is here to assist residents of the City of Savannah in maintaining stable, safe housing regardless of household income.

How it helps you

The fund helps you pay past due mortgage, rent, or utility balances from March through August 2020 from the loss of income directly related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are putting the money where the money needs to be – in the hands of those who need it the most.
