County launches $20 million COVID rent relief program: Now Accepting Requests for Second Phase of Rental Assistance

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.
