Summit County Cares will begin accepting applications again on September 8th at 8am. Households that have already received assistance through the program are eligible to apply for additional months of assistance if needed at this time. If your household has previously submitted an application to Summit County Cares in 2021, and the application is still in process, please do not resubmit another application. You may email email@example.com or call 2-1-1 if you are unsure of the status of your application.
The application process will take 10-15 minutes. Summit County residents may apply for help for rent and/or utilities (for renters only). Funding for mortgages or utilities for homeowners is no longer available through this program.
