2 ways: Rent and Utility Assistance is available through St Louis County

  1. As the U.S. House of Representatives meet today (7/30/21) to discuss extending the eviction moratorium, I want to shine a light on the available assistance to St. Louis County residents.

2. Renters and landlords who don’t know where to turn can use a new website from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. This website makes it easy to find rental assistance provider in your area. Spread the word that people can go to consumerfinance.gov/renthelp to find help paying rent.
