- Required documents include a current and signed lease, copy of late rental and/or utility bill(s); and
- Proof of inability to pay for rent and/or utilities due to COVID-19.

“St. Vincent de Paul Georgia has helped neighbors in need for nearly 120 years,” said Chamblee Mayor Eric Clarkson. “Now, with their headquarters in Chamblee, together, we can meet the needs of even more of our residents and neighbors during this pandemic.”
Chamblee City Council approved funding for this initiative along with a variety of other initiatives including personal protective equipment for government employees and COVID-19 testing for the public.
For more than a century, St. Vincent de Paul Georgia (SVdP Georgia) has prevented homelessness, fought hunger and changed lives.
