St. Louis City CARES - Rental & Mortgage Assistance Program

The City has allocated $5.4 million dollars of its CARES Act funding to assist City residents with their rental & mortgage payments. The Department of Human Services in collaboration with the Affordable Housing Commission and various housing organizations have established a rental and mortgage assistance program to help residents who are experiencing financial hardship during the COVID-19 pandemic. All forms of assistance will be made directly to the landlord/lender.

Universal Design

 The Universal Design Philosophy goes beyond traditional accessibility requirements that allow housing units to be used by people with mobility limitations. Universal Design incorporates a wide range of construction design features that allow the housing to be used optimally by the greatest number of people (young and old, short and tall, with and without physical limitations).

Moving Transit Forward

 Moving Transit Forward is a comprehensive, thirty-year plan for transit improvements, which will help keep the St. Louis region a great place to live, work, and play. Thanks to the input from thousands of regional leaders, businesses, and citizens, Metro created Moving Transit Forward with three goals in mind: Providing and enhancing transit service in the near and long-term, retaining existing riders while attracting new ones, and increasing the overall efficiency of the St. Louis regional transit system. 

Learn how AHC has implemented the plan into its funding round and obtain a list of MetroBus Frequent Routes and Maps.
