Rent/Mortgage and Utility Assistance for Delaware County Residents

Home / Outreach / Rent/Mortgage and Utility Assistance for Delaware County Residents

The Pathways to Hope fund assists with rent/mortgage and utility needs for qualifying
Delaware County, Ohio Residents. The Pathways to Hope program is managed by the
United Way of Delaware County in partnership with the Family Resource Center and the
Andrews House. Assistance is provided based on the level of available funding. If funding is
unavailable at the time of application, referrals to other organizations will be offered.

Application process:

  1. Complete the form with required documentation (you will be asked to create a Gmail
    account if you do not already have one in order to complete the application).
  2. Income eligibility will be determined by Low to Moderate Income (LMI) status.
  3. If initial eligibility is met, an in-depth interview will be conducted with the household
    to verify and confirm documentation needed to process the application for
    assistance. This interview will occur over the phone to ensure safety, or in-person
    as safety protocols allow and situation warrants.
  4. All payments will be made directly to the vendor (landlord, utility company, etc.) and
    may take up to 14 days to process.
  5. Go to for application form.
