CASA GRANDE — Help is available to individuals as well as businesses during the coronavirus outbreak on making rent, mortgage and utility payments and access to the internet.
The Community Action Human Resources Agency in Eloy is the local partner for the state’s new Rental Eviction Protection Program, said CAHRA board President Jon Thompson in an email. The agency is receiving $150,000 to help renters in Pinal County. CAHRA has already received around 94 calls about the program.
“These funds will be able to help so many affected by furloughs or reduction in hours due to COVID-19,” said Thompson, who is mayor of Coolidge.
