Clayton County residents and landlords needing rental payment assistance can get help this week during a three-day Emergency Rental Assistance Program event.

The south metro Atlanta county is hoping to expedite spending $6.9 million in ERAP funds it has to address the needs of families that were affected by COVID-19.

During the event, residents will get help with the pre-qualification process, filling out applications for funding, and onsite scanning and uploading the required documents.

The event is set for noon to 6 p.m. Monday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday. The event will be held at the Morrow Center, 1180 Southlake Circle, Suite 100, in Morrow, 30260.

To pre-register, residents should go to https://relief.claytoncountyga.gov.

Residents who have reliable Internet connectivity and access to a scanner to upload documents online may do so prior to arrival at the event to reduce wait times.
