Virginia Rent Relief Program (RRP)
Struggling to pay your rent due to COVID-19? Your rent payments may be covered by a new state program, the Virginia Rent Relief Program. For renters (tenants), there are two ways applications may be submitted for RRP rental assistance (only one of the two ways may be used per renter):
1. The renter may apply directly through the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD).
2. The renter’s landlord may apply on the tenant’s behalf through Virginia Housing.
