Applications are Now Open for the Second Phase of the COVID Rent Relief Program
Montgomery County is now accepting requests for the second phrase of the COVID Rent Relief Program. The program will continually review applications while funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Formal and informal rental agreements qualify for aid. Up to $4,000 can be distributed to households for rent arrears and future rental payments. Households with a formal lease agreement may have the aid issued directly to the landlord. For informal rental arrangements with no lease to the household’s name, aid may be given directly to the tenant.
Households in areas with the highest COVID impact will be prioritized.
Eligibility will be evaluated with each individual application by Housing Stabilization staff. Please check the link provided to review the household requirements for this program and for frequently asked questions.
