United Way of the Coastal Empire (UWCE) is currently not accepting new applications for Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA). UWCE is continuing to process prescreened applications received on or by August 15, 2021. It is estimated that these applications will exhaust our remaining ERA direct allocation from the Chatham County Board of Commissioners of 3 million dollars. Chatham County and City of Savannah residents in need of emergency rental assistance and/or utility assistance through the ERA project should call the Economic Opportunity Authority at 912.238.2960. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
