New Franklin County rental assistance hub

Update | Tuesday, October 26, 2021

The Affordable Housing Alliance of Central Ohio has launched Rentful, a new rental assistance hub. The program was made possible with support from the City of Columbus, Franklin County Board of Commissioners, United Way of Central Ohio, and the Siemer Institute.

Through the program, Central Ohio renters and landlords can get up to 18 months of assistance. Rentful provides simple, reliable, and easy-to-access information on Central Ohio programs that help us stay safe at home. It also dispels common myths, provides eviction information customized to Franklin County, and highlights the places where renters and landlords can go to get more support.
