blog posts Emergency Rental Assistance 2. Scholarship & Financial Images If you’ve been unable to pay your rent due to COVID-19, we’re here to help you. It’s important to continue paying as much of your rent as you can. Also, talk to your landlord on a regular basis about your situation. Funds are limited so complete your application as soon as possible. Only one application per household is allowed and an application is not a guarantee of assistance. If you are approved, you will receive a grant of $5,000 that will be sent to your landlord to be applied against your rent.
