Need Help with Rent or Food? Get Financial Emergency Help

The financial impact of COVID-19 has been devastating, causing millions to seek financial emergency help for rent, food, utilities, transportation, and other critical expenses.

Every day, people across the country are forced to make the difficult choice between paying rent and having running water, or buying food for the family and keeping the lights on. These sacrifices are more common than you’d think—roughly 50.8 million households can’t afford to budget for essential expenses every month. And nearly 1 in 4 households has experienced food insecurity this year.

For many, affording monthly expenses is a constant challenge. If you need help or want to help a loved one, start a fundraiser to cover your monthly bills.
