The Montgomery County Housing Opportunities Commission has launched a new rental assistance program for people affected by Covid-19. The program plans to offer up to $500 a month per household to partially cover rent expenses. People who have lost their jobs, had an increase of expenses, or are otherwise experiencing financial hardship due to the current economic situation are encouraged to apply.
The window to apply starts June 1, 2020 at 10:00 AM and closes June 5, 2020 at 2:00 PM.
Those who receive funding through this program are not expected to pay it back, as it is considered a grant.
