Residents must meet eligibility requirements established by the federal government including:
• Incomes less than 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI).
• One or more individuals in the household has qualified for unemployment benefits or can attest in writing that they have experienced a reduction in household income, incurred significant costs, or experienced other financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic; and
• One or more individuals in the household can demonstrate a risk of experiencing homelessness or housing instability which may include a past due utility or rent notice or an eviction notice; or unsafe or unhealthy living conditions; or any other evidence of such risk.
