Moline Township/Rock Island County Townships distribute Emergency Rent/Mortgage Assistance


Moline Township was recently awarded $5,419.00 in Emergency Food & Shelter Funding to be distributed throughout Rock Island County's 18 Township offices. The funding is restricted to rent/mortgage assistance only. Moline Township is a Local Recipient Organization authorized to distribute the emergency rent/mortgage assistance funding. The amount granted for distribution is determined by the unemployment rate in the County.

Rock Island County Townships have helped hundreds of families with their rent or mortgages over the past 16 years with this funding. The townships involvement in the distribution of the funds helps those in need access the funding right in their own community. Anyone in need of this funding should call the township (309)764-3558 in which they live for more information.
