Pathways funding is available for economic relief to residents. This is made possible through the partnership of the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County together with United Way of Greater Charlottesville.
Financial Relief Through Pathways Funding
The City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County have partnered with United Way of Greater Charlottesville to provide financial relief through the remaining Pathways funding for residents who are experiencing negative economic impacts due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Charlottesville Gov reported.
The Pathways funding set aside for Albemarle County residents has been exhausted by the Pathways Community Resource Helpline for rent, mortgage, and utility assistance.
According to Ravi Respeto, President & CEO of the United Way of Greater Charlottesville, the economic hardships continue to linger for many families though they have weathered the worst of the health impacts of the pandemic.
She said it will take time and resources to the right size for families greatly affected by economic hardships. Families will need continued support to overcome the two years financial setback caused by the pandemic, especially those who lost jobs, and wages or who faced evictions and Pathways funding is a great help.
