Mortgage, Utility & Rent Relief (MURR) Program

If your organization has experienced extraordinary business disruption and not been
able to open due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, the new Mortgage, Utility
and Rent Relief (MURR) Program may be able to offer assistance with some of your
fixed costs.

To qualify to receive these relief funds, your organization must meet certain eligibility
criteria. NC Commerce is accepting applications for this assistance on a first-come,
first-served basis.  They can't guarantee your business will receive funding under this
program. However, they will pay the maximum assistance for which a business is
eligible, and will make those payments to as many qualifying businesses as they can
until program funds are exhausted. If additional funds become available after the
first round of funding is committed, the Program may reopen - but there is no
guarantee they can reopen.

The MURR team is available to assist you. Email your questions or comments
to: [email protected].
