Homelessness Prevention

ECHO’s Homelessness Prevention program provides emergency financial assistance to Gadsden, Leon, and Wakulla county residents facing the loss of their housing due to a financial or other crisis. The intent of the program is to provide case management and financial assistance for late rent payments and overdue utility bills to enable families and individuals to avoid eviction and remain stably housed after receiving the assistance.

Complete the form below to request assistance for past due or upcoming rent and utility bills. Please note that submitting a request doesn’t guarantee approval, but you will be contacted by ECHO within 3 business days to begin processing your application.

Unfortunately, the funding for our rent assistance program has been exhausted and we aren't taking new applications at this time. Please check www.echotlh.org/rent for updates regarding funding availability during July 1, 2024 - June 30, 2025.
