Funds Still Available to Help with Rent, Repairs and Utilities CRRC Says

Canyon Lake's charity powerhouse turned 40 this year.

Emergency funds are still available to help Canyon Lake residents pay rent and utility bills and to repair damaged water pipes.

Jason Derscheid, executive director of the Community Resource and Recreation Center of Canyon Lake (CRRC) said today his staff can help people still struggling due to the COVID-19 pandemic and February winter storms.

The federal eviction moratorium for the COVID-19 pandemic ended March 31.

He urged residents to visit TexasRentRelief.com to find help making critical payments. The site explains how residents can access state emergency funds to pay rent and utility bills.

However, the CRRC can help, too.

“We have funding to help you if you are facing eviction,” he said. “We do not want you evicted — we want to help.”

CRRC also obtained grant funding specifically for water repairs following February’s winter storm. Residents with broken water pipes or budget woes can call CRRC to see if they qualify for assistance.

“We just need your repair invoice and we will help to cover those costs,” Derscheid said. “We know there are still people in our community in need of running water. We want to get it fixed.”
