|New Update to the Rent & Mortgage Relief Program: |
Through a new state program, Virginia Housing is administering relief for renters experiencing financial difficulties due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Through the Virginia Rent and Mortgage Relief Program (RMRP), eligible landlords can apply on behalf of their tenants to receive financial assistance for past-due rental payments dating back to April 1, 2020. Funding for RMRP is through the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
Applications must be received by 11:50 p.m. on Nov. 15, 2020. Please email RMRP@VirginiaHousing.com with any additional questions.
