You should pay your rent if you can!

Do you need assistance paying rent?

HOMEOWNERS

You should pay your mortgage if you can!

If you cannot pay your mortgage, call your mortgage servicer and let them know that your employment or income has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Most servicers are offering at least a six-month forbearance of mortgage payments, allowing a temporary suspension of payments until homeowners are able to return to work. Foreclosures have been suspended for at least 60 days for government insured mortgages.

UTILITIES

Our priority is assisting customers who currently have any utilities disconnected (gas, electric, and/or water). We are still assisting customers who need to reverify their PIPP.

If your water was shut off in 2020:

  • Call your local water department to have your water reconnected.  Your water will not be automatically reconnected – you must call.
  • All reconnection fees will be waived.

If your water was shut off in 2019:

DP&L and Vectren will not disconnect services until further notice.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR CEO

While we continue to navigate the challenges of COVID-19, we remain committed to supporting our community by providing solutions to those who have been disproportionately impacted by the virus. The health and safety of our customers and staff remain our highest priority and we are carefully planning and implementing changes to deliver services and respond to the most critical needs of the Miami Valley.

At the same time, we again find ourselves with sorrowful and heavy hearts as the killing of George Floyd and many others has left us stunned and deeply saddened. The incident has ignited powerful feelings of pain and frustration for our agency and members of our community, especially people of color, who have long suffered from the impacts of systemic racism and oppression.

Through the last year, our resolve is being tested, but we remain resilient. And today, the work, the values, and the mission of Miami Valley Community Action Partnership are as vital as ever. We envision a more equitable country for all people and reaffirm our commitment to work with our partners across the region to eliminate the causes and conditions of poverty and make positive, lasting change wherever we can.

Lisa B. Stempler
President & CEO
