Rent Relief Stimulus Update

March 08, 2021 5:04 PM | Anonymous

"Rental Emergency Assistance funding came through in the December 2020 Stimulus Bill and will result in $25 billion being made available to residents who are behind on rent and utilities for Covid-19 related reasons.  The funds are distributed like a block grant, to states, territories and substantial counties and municipalities, as well as specific Native American Housing Authorities.

Irrespective of previous income, if a resident lost their job due to Covid-19 and remained unemployed for 90 days or more, they can seek these funds for up to 12 months of arrearage and potentially, an additional 3 months, if needed.  Grantees are encouraged to focus significant funds on those residents at less than 50% of the Average Median Income (AMI) for the region."
