Attention Landlords: have your tenants had difficulty paying rent due to COVID-19?
THERE’S HELP AVAILABLE!
Small Landlord Emergency Grant Program
Have your tenants had difficulty making rent payments as a result of the COVID-19 emergency? The Small Landlord Emergency Grant (SLEG) Program will reimburse small residential rental property owners for lost rent revenue due to COVID-19 between April and July 2020, as long as they agree to forgive outstanding back rent and late fees that their tenant accrued during this time.
The application portal will open on Wednesday, August 19 at 9 AM and remain open until Wednesday, August 26 at 1 PM. Once the application portal is closed, applications will be reviewed and awarded in a computer-randomized order to give each application an equal chance of being funded. Applications will be evaluated for eligibility and completeness.
