Housing Assistance

Ogden-Weber Community Action Partnership is unable to accept rental assistance applications for the statewide COVID rent relief program beginning February 26, 2021. As of March 15, 2021, please visit https://rentrelief.utah.gov/ to apply online.

 

The CDC has extended the eviction moratorium until March 31, 2021. If you are worried about immediate eviction, we encourage you to complete the CDC DECLARATION FORM (https://www.plautah.org/get-help-2/court-forms) and provide a copy to your landlord.

 

If you have received an eviction notice or court documents prior to reaching out to our agency or while waiting to hear back from our agency, reach out immediately to People’s Legal Aid (PLA) (https://www.plautah.org/contact). PLA is a new non-profit legal aid organization in Utah focused on providing free legal assistance to people dealing with eviction and debt collection.

 

Thank you for your patience during the transition.

Circles USA Mission: To inspire and equip families and communities to resolve poverty and thrive.

Circles is a free resource for families who would like to improve their lives by increasing their social capital, improving job skills, and connecting to members of the community. Through open conversation about the unwritten rules of the middle class, participants claim a stake in the community and become advocates for themselves and other families in need by attending weekly classes.

Through training and weekly meetings, participants (called Circle Leaders) build friendships with volunteers (called Circles Allies). Over time, these relationships help families climb out of poverty and achieve financial stability.

Circles isn’t about quick fixes or handouts. Circles equips families and individuals with the relationships, confidence, skills, and knowledge required to be self-reliant. Circles is a long-term program that assists families and individuals in reaching financial stability.

What can I expect from Circles Weber County?

  • Weekly meetings for the whole family (dinner and childcare provided)
  • Long-term goal setting
  • Establishing your own support network
  • Creating an individualized plan just for you
  • Gaining access to community resources
  • Sharing talents and skills with the community
