Beginning Monday, Wake County families living in hotels may be eligible for new financial assistance to pay for housing.

Wake Prevent has been around since October, helping 100 households a month cover the cost of housing. The pandemic has increased the need for housing assistance, especially those who live in hotels.

To help those families, Wake Prevent will not provide financial assistance for people living in hotels starting Monday.

We’ve now expanded Wake Prevent to cover folks who are living in hotels. So instead of only paying to move them out, we’re paying for the hotel fee so that they can also now shelter in place, Wake County Housing Department Director Lorena McDowell said.

People will qualify for financial assistance if they live in a hotel, lost income due to COVID-19 and have children who are younger than school age or who are enrolled in Wake County Public School System or a local charter school.

For people who live in hotels but don’t qualify for help with Wake Prevent, the North Carolina Department of Justice is stepping up. The DOJ sent a letter to nearly 100 hotels and motels across the state after being notified that those businesses may be threatening to evict residents. 

The letter reads, “We write to inform you that evicting these individuals without a court order may constitute violations of North Carolina’s landlord-tenant and consumer protection laws.”

For more information about the program and to learn more about Wake Prevent eligibility, families can call (919)-856-5661 or email covid19.housing.hotelfamilies@wakegov.com
