Residents must meet eligibility requirements established by the federal government including:

• Incomes less than 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI).  
• One or more individuals in the household has qualified for unemployment benefits or can attest in writing that they have experienced a reduction in household income, incurred significant       costs, or experienced other financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic; and
• One or more individuals in the household can demonstrate a risk of experiencing homelessness or housing instability which may include a past due utility or rent notice or an eviction notice; or unsafe or unhealthy living conditions; or any other evidence of such risk.

Households affected by unemployment for 90 days or more, and households with incomes at or below the 50 percent of AMI, will be prioritized.

Payments will be made directly to landlords and utility companies. Both parties will need to sign off and provide documentation.

Residents may submit their applications online. Documents may be uploaded directly within the application. Review the application checklist.
