Tenant Information Hotline

The Tenant Eviction Relief Project & Tenant Information Hotline is ready to take your calls! ABLE advocates provide a full range of services, including client intake and assessment of eviction defenses, investigation, litigation, and community legal education. We also work with clients to access tenant rights information, receive rental assistance funds, and support policy advocacy that protects tenants’ housing stability.

Contact the Tenant Information Hotline at 1-833-777-0277.

This project is made possible through a $1 million grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to pilot a rural eviction relief program. The pilot program aims to combat the housing crisis disproportionately affecting low and extremely low-income Ohioans. With these grant funds, ABLE will allocate new resources to focus on seven rural counties with a high population of households earning less than $35,000: Allen (42%), Auglaize (38%), Champaign (27%), Clark (37%), Logan (20%), Mercer (33%), and Miami (38%).

*The Tenant Information Hotline is an information only hotline and cannot provide legal advice. The Hotline may transfer callers to the Legal Aid Intake Line in addition to providing information about landlord and tenant obligations. For those living in qualifying areas, full representation at eviction may be available. More limited advice and counsel may also be available for those who qualify. For more information, please call the Hotline or the Legal Aid Intake Line.
