Star-C is a non-profit that works to reduce transiency in affordable/workforce apartment communities. Our goal is to help families stay in their homes! At our four host properties, Star-C offers wraparound services in partnership with the landlords, who have agreed to keep their rents affordable. This helps tenants to live in-place and reduces transiency in the local school system.

If you live in Cobb County, have a COVID related hardship and have a area medium income less than 80% APPLY FOR THE COBB RENTAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM BELOW.

The Cobb County Board of Commissioners allocated a new grant and guidelines to assist Cobb Residents. Star-C is now taking Eviction Relief applications for Cobb County renters only. The Eviction Relief is a program to help renters remain in their homes. At this time with the funding received from Cobb County we are only assisting renters in that area.
