Alexis Scott spoke with a local leader on why rental assistance is so important.

If you're looking for rental assistance... you've been negatively impacted by the pandemic... and you live in huntsville..

Help is on the way.

Tomorrow the city's website portal will open for those eligable to apply.

Waay-31s alexis scott spoke with a local leader on why it's so important that if you're in need of help... you apply as soon as it's available.

Alexis... dexter strong, reverend "this isn't a free giveaway by the government.

This is you receiving what you paid into the government, back," dexter strong is a reverend in huntsville.

He says he's thankful the city of huntsville is taking advantage of federal grant's to help people in need.

Huntsville city council secured 6-million dollars to give people funds for rent and energy consumption.

But there are requirements to be eligible.

Got someone working on this your household income must be at or below 80-percent of the area's average income.

One or more persons in your home must be on unemployment or have in writing they are experiencing hardship due to the coronavirus pandemic... and you must show proof that you are at risk of being evicted.

Strong says he's thankful city council was able to get a plan in place to distribute these funds -- but for some struggling... he worries it may be too late.

Dexter strong, reverend "if we want to do what's right, what morality demands, we will get these funds to the people who need it the most, quickly without bureaucratic red tape," right now... the site is only for those who live within huntsville city limits.

But strong knows there's many people who live in unincoporated areas of the county... and says they deserve help as well.

Dexter strong, reverend "get resources in the hands and pockets of working-class alabamians who have been impacted harmfully by this pandemic.

There are no excuses," the madison county commission is working on a similar plan for county residents..

But right now there's no date on when that come to fruition.
