The federal eviction moratorium expired July 31, 2021. Virginia is still administering relief for renters experiencing a negative financial impact due to the COVID-19 pandemic through the Virginia Rent Relief Program (RRP). Through this state program, you can apply (or your landlord may apply on your behalf) to receive funds to pay delinquent rent arrear payments back to April 1, 2020, and up to three months of payments into the future to maintain housing stability. The total payments may not exceed a total of 15 months of rental assistance per household.
Landolords, visit the Virginia Housing website at www.VirginiaHousing.com/RentRelief
or email them at RentRelief@VirginiaHousing.com to see how RRP may help your tenants pay their rent.
Renters, contact your landlord today to apply on your behalf. This is the quickest way to access rent relief. Or apply for yourself. Get started on DHCD’s website: dhcd.virginia.gov/eligibility
