Rent and Mortgage Relief:

Financial assistance for rent and mortgage payments beginning April 1, 2020, & onward. One-time assistance with opportunity for renewal based on availability of funding & the household’s need for additional assistance. If the household returns for additional assistance, current income must be verified. For renters, landlords must not initiate eviction proceedings against the renter for non-payment of rent during the month for which the rent relief payment is paid.

Guidelines for rent and mortgage assistance starting from April 1, 2020:
* The current month is determined based on the date in which the application and all documentation has been verified by the grantee. If verified after the 15th day of the month, RMRP funds may also be used for the upcoming month’s rent.
