Montgomery County officials today launched the second phase of the COVID Rent Relief Program to provide financial assistance to eligible residents. More than $1 million in financial assistance was given to eligible households in the initial phase of the program.
Applications are being accepted now (see application form). The program will accept applications on a rolling basis while funds are available. Approved households may receive up to $4,000 for rent arrears and/or a rent credit for future months, paid directly to the landlord when a formal lease agreement exists.
