Assistance includes rental payments, with a two-month maximum assistance per household. Maximum assistance is capped at $1,500 per month and $3,000 total per household. Assistance payments will only be made to the property landlord or rental property management companies.
The one-time assistance does not have to be repaid. The $619,500 program is being funded through the city’s allocation of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) federal funds and specific CDBG-COVID-19 funding expected to be received later this summer.
