Eviction Prevention Assistance Program

Families and individuals experiencing homelessness or in imminent danger of losing their housing should, as always, call the Regional Housing Crisis Hotline, (757) 227-5932, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Referrals will be conducted by phone.

Due to the large volume of pre-applications received, Virginia Beach Housing & Neighborhood Preservation suspended the pre-application process for the Eviction Prevention Assistance program on Tuesday, May 5. Case workers are continuing to review and process pre-applications submitted before the cut-off deadline. Applicants will be contacted by phone for further screening. An announcement will be made if, and when, the pre-application process is reopened. Residents are encouraged to check this page periodically for updates.

​The Eviction Prevention Assistance program provides eligible low- and moderate-income renters in Virginia Beach who have experienced financial hardship due to COVID-19 with a one-time, short-term rental assistance to prevent evictions. The program provides limited assistance with rental arrears and rental payments. It does not provide mortgage assistance.
