County Provides More Than $28 Million in Rent Relief Assistance; More Funds Available

Montgomery County has provided more than $28 million in rent relief assistance since May of 2020 – supporting about 5,600 households, according to County Executive Marc Elrich. Local leaders say there’s more funding available, and another 2,100 active applications are currently being reviewed.

The COVID-19 Rent Relief Program provides short-term rental assistance to eligible households who have experienced lost income due to the COVID-19 pandemic and have fallen behind on rent.

Elrich explains how much rent relief funding is released each week and county efforts to prevent evictions.
