The Loudoun County government has expanded its rent assistance program for Loudoun County households economically impacted by COVID-19.
The Board of Supervisors has approved re-allocating $480,000 in Community Development Block Grant funds to expand the rent assistance program. The goal is to help ensure housing stability for low-income workers who have been furloughed, lost jobs or had work hours reduced due to the pandemic.
The terms of the program include:
Residents who were current in their rent payments as of March 30, 2020, and who now need help paying rent, may submit a completed application form as well as eligibility documentation, such as a current lease and paperwork that shows a job loss, reduced income, or hardship due to COVID-19. This documentation will be verified to determine eligibility. Submitting an application does not guarantee financial assistance will be provided.
To download an application form and checklist, visit loudoun.gov/limitedrentassistance. To request a paper copy of the application form and checklist be mailed to you, contact the county’s Information and Referral program at 703-777-0420.
Loudoun County encourages residents to stay informed about COVID-19.
