Financial Hardship

ENCAP's helpline was established in March 2020 in response to COVID as a way to continue to serve the community safely during this time of social distancing. ENCAP's lobby's remain closed at this time, but we are fielding calls for emergency rent and utility assistance in the order that they are received. Please call the helpline, and leave your contact information so that we can call you back, and take your application over the phone. Thank you! 

ENCAP Helpline: (402) 453-5656 ext. 223


Due to an extremely high call volume, our Help Line is temporarily closed. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.

If you have a utility shut-off or eviction notice, please leave a message with your name, phone number, and the type of assistance you are seeking. If you do not have a utility shut off or eviction notice, please call 211 for additional community resources, or click below for a list of community resources.
