What assistance is available for renters who aren’t able to pay rent due to loss of a job as a result of COVID-19 AND landlords who won’t be receiving rent payments?

There are existing programs to assist with paying rent to prevent eviction but they are not scaled or oriented to address the current problem. The state is working with landlord representatives and housing advocates to build on current programs and to look at the potential of a new rent assistance program tailored and scaled to address the current crisis. Federal assistance with a new rent assistance effort is critical due to the large dollar amounts necessary to meaningfully address the scope of this problem.
