How much can eligible applicants expect to receive in assistance?
Eligible households may receive up to $3,500 per month in combined rent and utility assistance for a maximum of 18 months or a total of $63,000 in benefits paid. This 18-month total is the combined total of partial and full months of past-due, current, and future months. No further assistance can be paid after 18 months of benefits have been distributed.
Payments may be made to the landlord (if participating), utility company, or the tenant directly (if landlord does not complete application and participate in program).
