Mortgage, Utility and Rent Relief (MURR) Program: Click here for more info Program Update - as of November 12, 2020: Starting today, full-service restaurants will be eligible to apply to the Mortgage, Utility, and Rent Relief (MURR) Program. Restaurants may only request direct payments for up to four months of rent or mortgage interest - restaurants will not be eligible for utility cost reimbursement. Restaurants may request payments for up to $20,000 per location, for no more than two locations, and must employ fewer than 50 people at the location where they are seeking assistance. Anyone who previously met our eligibility requirements and already submitted an application will not be negatively impacted by these new changes. Among other things, you will not lose your place in line. We expect this program change will quickly lead to the exhaustion of available funds for the MURR program. Before you first apply, review the questions first. We've posted the MURR application questions to expect, so you can prepare your answers and gather your documents before starting the actual online application. The MURR program is for businesses or nonprofit organizations (nonprofits became eligible as of October 27); For citizens seeking help with rent or utility payments, Governor Cooper has announced the N.C. Housing Opportunities and Prevention of Evictions (HOPE) Program. For more information on the HOPE program, call 2-1-1 or visit nc211.org/hope to apply online.
