As the COVID-19 virus has created significant financial hardship for many low to moderated income individuals and families in Eagle County, Eagle Valley Family Assistance Fund has decided to temporarily suspend its traditional revolving loan program. Instead EVFAF is launching a COVID-19 Related Housing Assistance Program to provide aid for those directly impacted by this crisis.
The Housing Assistance Program is intended to provide immediate assistance for one to two months worth of rental/mortgage payments. Grants are limited to $3,000 and are to be paid directly to the landlord or mortgage company. Payments cannot be paid directly to applicants. Please note that this program is limited to families and individuals who live and work in Minturn, Leadville, Eagle-Vail, Edwards, Wolcott, Bond, McCoy, Eagle, Gypsum and Dotsero.
Please return a COMPLETE application by one of the following methods: online submission form (below), PDF form emailed to email@example.com, PDF form dropped off at FirstBank in Avon or mailed to our Post Office Box.
Please note: EVFAF is accepting applications for rent assistance ONLY for April and May 2020. Rent assistance applications for June or beyond will not be reviewed at this time. For rent assistance application consideration for months of April and May 2020, applications are only being considered for Minturn, Leadville, Eagle-Vail, Edwards, Wolcott, Bond, McCoy, Eagle, Gypsum and Dotsero.
If you and your family have been affected by the COVID-19 crisis and live in Eagle County you may apply for an assistance grant from the Eagle Valley Family Assistance Fund. This grant will help provide funding for one to two months rent.
