FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) –– If you’re struggling to pay rent or utility bills due to COVID-19, the Fayetteville Community Resource Division is offering financial help.

Fayetteville Community Resource Director, Yolanda Fields, said this funding is for anyone who has been financially impacted.
