COVID-19 Emergency Rental Assistance Program

For Renters

The Rental Assistance Program is available to renters who have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, who are experiencing housing instability, and whose household income is at or below 80% of area median family income.

Applications are no longer being accepted.


How it works

  • Tenants and landlords may apply at any time. However, landlords can’t receive rental payments without the tenants’ consent and participation.
  • Tenants and landlords identify the other when applying for assistance. If one party is not yet enrolled, they will be contacted via email and asked to enroll.
  • Once an application for assistance is approved, the tenant and landlord will receive an email indicating the amount of rental assistance provided.
  • Program administrators will pay the awarded amount via electronic payment (ACH) or physical check.

What to expect

Be prepared to onboard information to support rental arrears and the need for rental assistance by tenant. Among others, the following are examples of documents that may be used to support the request for rental assistance:

  • Proof of income.
  • Lease agreements.
  • Rental arrears statements.
