The City of Council Bluffs received Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) funding to assist individuals and families with past due rental, mortgage, and utility assistance.  To be eligible for funding, a household must certify that they were negatively impacted by COVID-19 through a loss of wages or a reduction of wages (unemployed or underemployed)  and income qualify. 


If you are not eligible for CARES Act, you still may be eligible for housing problem solving and related financial assistance.  A housing stabilization 

caseworker will be in contact with you if you entered the requested information on the website.

“it is hard to argue that housing is not a fundamental human need.
Decent, affordable housing should be a basic right for everybody in this country. The reason is simple: without stable shelter, everything else falls apart.”
