Northeast Iowa Community Action Corporation is reminding the public about the eviction prevention program that it runs to offer rent assistance for households affected by COVID-19.

To be eligible, clients must be at risk of eviction and have a loss or reduction of employment because of issues related to COVID-19. Applicants may qualify for up to 4 months of assistance or $3,200, whichever is less.  Assistance can be paid for rent payments back to April 2020 or as far forward as December 2020. The program is available for households under 80 percent average median income at the time of application.

For questions, contact NEICAC Housing Director Jeremy Jostand at 563-387-4959 or  For more information on the eviction and foreclosure prevention program or to begin the application process, visit or
