ASSISTANCE TO THE HOMELESS
Financial assistance to low-income households is made possible by a grant awarded to the City by the Louisiana Housing Corporation – The Emergency Solutions Grant. Eligible Residents can receive utility subsidies, rent payment assistance, counseling, and other supportive services to prevent homelessness. The applicant must provide proof of Kenner’s residency to receive rent and utility payment assistance. Homeowners and persons already on Section 8 (or another form of state or federal rental assistance) are not eligible for assistance. For rental assistance, the applicant must have a court-ordered eviction notice that is signed by a judge and have a current lease agreement in the applicant’s name. For utility assistance, the applicant must have a disconnect notice and lease agreement in their name. The amount of assistance may vary.
