        Many new financial resources exist because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and many of the eligibility requirements for existing low-income resources have been expanded to include more people. All the same, over the past year many people have still found it hard to navigate the complexities of the system and connect to these resources. Realizing this, the Hamilton County Board of Commissioners launched a new website this month, 513 Relief (dot) org to serve as a gateway to relief options available to people economically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The website helps inform and connect individuals and families to a wealth of COVID-19 related resources:

         

        Housing & Utility Relief — keeping your family in your home;

        Food Assistance — providing you and your family access to healthy food;

        Employment Assistance — unemployment resources and help to look and train for a job;

        Small Business Assistance — to help your business survive the economic impact of COVID;

        Vaccine & Testing — vaccine information and no cost COVID testing; and

        Other Services — services for your mental health, addiction, free wifi, and more;

         

        If you or a loved one has been economically impacted by the pandemic, visit 513 Relief (dot) org to find a wealth of information about the relief resources available in Hamilton County.

            Hi Everyone. If you are trying to get an update on the status of your case, you will need to contact the provider of the service you were applying for. For instance, if 513relief.org put you in contact with Hamilton County Job & Family Services, for food assistance (for example), you will need to contact Hamilton County Job & Family Services for an update on your case; if 513relief.org put you in contact with the Community Action Agency, for rental assistance (for example), you will need to follow-up with the Community Action Agency. If you need help finding agency contact information, you can use our “GET HELP NOW” tab at the top of the page, which enables you to search for the contact information of any social service agency in the Greater Cincinnati area. I hope this helps.
