Resources for Residents Affected by COVID-19

The City of Orem understands many area residents are struggling to pay for their housing and utilities and meet basic needs due to job loss and other effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.  We as a City want to make sure you have the needed information and resources to help you weather the current storm.  Below are some local resources, including flyers in both English and Spanish, that can assist you during this difficult time.  Please reach out if you have questions, we are here to help.

  • Free help for those at high risk of complications from COVID-19: If you have a chronic condition that affects your heart, lungs or immune system, you should be under a more strict quarantine. But free help is available for delivering your groceries, getting you to medical appointments, and more! Call 877-424-4640 to find help near you.¬†¬†

  • DO YOU NEED HELP WITH YOUR UTILITY BILLS?¬†¬†The HEAT Program helps low-income individuals and families by providing one-time utility assistance each year.¬† Help is available if you have lost your job or have reduced income due to COVID-19.¬† Visit¬†www.mountainland.org/heat¬†or call 801-229-3855 for information on how to apply.¬†¬†

  • The CDC issued a federal eviction moratorium for all renters at risk being evicted to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. The moratorium goes into effect Sept. 4-Dect 31, 2020. Qualified renters must provide a signed declaration to their landlord.¬† The federal eviction moratorium includes a sample declaration. Renters can still be evicted for the following reasons: (1) conducting criminal activity on the property; (2) damaging the property; (3) violating building codes, health ordinances; and (4) violating the rental contract (other than the timely payment of rent, late fees, etc.).
