COVID-19 Financial Assistance for Tenants and Homeowners
Don’t Wait to Get Help!
The City of Takoma Park and Montgomery County are prepared to assist residents who are struggling financially with meeting their housing expenses. The impact of COVID-19 on Takoma Park residents extends to renters and homeowners and may continue throughout 2022. With the reopening of the courts and pending evictions, it is important for residents to seek financial assistance.
The Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services and the City of Takoma Park are working to ensure that financial support is available to prevent eviction, foreclosure, disconnection of utilities, and to address the need for food. The first step is for residents to reach out for help.
The Montgomery County COVID-19 Rent
Relief Program – Phase 4 is available to assist tenants in resolving outstanding back rent. This program is open to residents of Montgomery County who are behind in rent because of COVID-19. Eligible households may receive up to $12,000 for rent owed or provide a rent credit for future rent payments. The application for assistance can be completed by either the landlord or the tenant. More information is available at www.MC311.com/RentRelief or by calling 311.
The City of Takoma Park is also assisting residents who are behind in rent, homeowner association fees, facing foreclosure, utility
disconnection, or need help with food. Tenants behind in rent should begin the application process for the Montgomery County COVID-19 Rent Relief Program first. The City will also work with property owners who have lost rental income due to COVID-19. Don’t wait to get help.
