Apply for Help

Asking for help is not easy. If you’re having to ask because of the impact of COVID-19 it can even be tougher because you may never have had to ask for financial assistance before. We understand. Volunteers from DBC are here to help you if you qualify.

What We Do

  • One time financial assistance with rent or utilities
  • One time food assistance
  • References to other community resources

How to apply?

We will only consider assistance to individuals that have completed an online application. Any documents submitted prior to completing an application will not be considered. Applications submitted for future rental periods will not be considered. We only assist with rent for past periods up thru the current month. We do not assist with future month’s rent.

To qualify you must:

  • Live in zip code 30338, 30328, 30346 or 30350 (see additional resources for other zip codes below).
  • Be in the apartment for more than 90 days.

PLEASE NOTE: Submitting an application does not guarantee an appointment or assistance. By submitting this application, you understand and agree that we may contact the leasing office or utility company to verify any needed information.

How will we follow up?

  • Once you have submitted the application and all listed documents above submitted, a volunteer will be in touch soon to set up a phone interview. A call from one of our volunteers may show the caller id as “Private Caller” or similar wording so please answer such calls during this application period.
  • On the phone interview, the volunteer will review your application and ask questions to get to know you better.
  • If approved, assistance will be sent to your apartment complex or utility company.
