RAMP CLT applications closing Tuesday

The applications will close on Tuesday, Nov. 15.

MECKLENBURG COUNTY, N.C. — RAMP CLT, a rent assistance program, will stop accepting new applications on Tuesday, Nov. 15. After that date, the portal will be closed. 

RAMP CLT was created for rent and utility assistance for people impacted by the pandemic and who were being evicted. 

The program has been helpful to many renters and businesses who relied on the aid to keep a roof over their heads or their doors open.

However, RAMP CLT also denied almost half of the applications they received and nearly ran out of money several times.

The program received more funding in May with the help of DreamKey Partners to utilize $26.4 million for the program. 

If you are in need of rent and utility assistance, be sure to apply through RAMP CLT before it closes on Tuesday.
