DeKalb’s Tenant-Landlord Assistance Program to Stop Accepting New Applications May 31

Dekalb County

Due to the limited amount of remaining funds and the large number of pending applications, DeKalb County announced today that it is suspending the acceptance of new applications for financial help through the DeKalb Tenant-Landlord Assistance Coalition (TLAC) program.

The last day to apply for the program will be Wednesday, May 31, 2023.

Since reopening on April 3, 2023, the TLAC program has received approximately 1,100 applications for rental assistance. Those tenants and landlords who already have in-person appointments scheduled and/or submitted completed applications will still be considered for the remaining TLAC funds.

With the support of the Board of Commissioners and in partnership with DeKalb County Clerk of State and Magistrate Courts, DeKalb Magistrate Court, Atlanta Legal Aid, and the DeKalb Housing Authority, TLAC is designed to provide financial relief to DeKalb renters threatened by eviction and landlords facing revenue losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
