Financial Assistance

Forsyth and Dawson County residents experiencing hardships due to COVID-19

can apply for Emergency Financial Assistance.

Assistance requests may be used to cover past due rent, mortgage or utilities as a result of impending eviction. Once the online application is complete, you will be contacted and required to send documentation to prove your identity, your income, the loss of income caused by the pandemic and the amount of your need. Your application will not be considered until all required documents are submitted. Applicants may not receive the full amount requested.  If you have already applied and/or were assisted by an agency in Forsyth County, but are seeking more assistance based on the increased funding limit, please contact your original agency of assistance or call United Way of Forsyth County for more information.
