Montgomery County has launched the second phase of its $20 million COVID-19 Rent Relief Program to provide financial assistance to eligible residents. The County’s Department of Health and Human Services will accept applications on a rolling basis while funds remain available.
Eligible renters must certify that they have income under 60 percent of the average median income, which is $65,529 for a family of three; that they lost income due to COVID-19; that they are rent-burdened and behind on rent; and that they have been a resident of Montgomery County since February 2020. Households may have formal or informal lease arrangements.
For more information, including details about program requirements and an online application, see the County’s COVID-19 website. Households can complete the online application or contact 311 for additional assistance.
