The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has allocated Community Development Block Grant Coronavirus (CDBG-CV) funds to St. Charles County. Funds are available to assist County residents experiencing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The CDBG-CV Public Services Program provides short-term rent, mortgage, and utility assistance to households facing foreclosure or eviction. The purpose of this program is to prevent housing dislocation and homelessness in St. Charles County. Food and household items assistance is also available in this program.

This assistance is available for residents of unincorporated St. Charles County as well as residents living in the municipalities of Cottleville, Lake Saint Louis, New Melle, St. Charles, St. Paul, St. Peters, Weldon Spring, and Wentzville.

The following agencies are under contract with the County to provide rent, utility, mortgage, food and household items assistance:    

  • Habitat for Humanity of St. Charles County, 2041 Trade Center Dr. in St. Peters
  • LINC St. Charles County, 9 Love Park Lane in Wentzville
  • Sts. Joachim and Ann Care Service, 4116 McClay Road in St. Charles
  • NECAC, 3400 Meadow Pointe Drive in O’Fallon

Funds were also made available for a Temporary Hotel/Motel Sheltering Program for the homeless. This program provides interim sheltering of homeless persons who are medically fragile or highly vulnerable, and for persons impacted by COVID-19 with support to secure permanent housing. The program is administered by the Community Council of St. Charles County’s Coordinated Entry Team.  

To access any of these services, please contact Coordinated Entry by phone (2-1-1) or email for needs assessment and placement in services.
