Henderson Launches COVID-19 Rental Assistance Program

The City of Henderson Community Development Department has developed a COVID-19 Rental Assistance Program with funding granted by the CARES Act.

Posted: Dec 4, 2020 11:41 AM

Rental assistance is being offered to Henderson residents facing financial struggles due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The City of Henderson announced Friday that its Community Development Department had developed a COVID-19 Rental Assistance Program with funding in the amount of $25,000 awarded by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) to the City’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG).

The program offers rental assistance to eligible low-income renters in the City of Henderson who are behind on rent, as a way for those residents to avoid eviction.

The maximum assistance provided will span up to three months, with a maximum cap of $1,500 per terms of tenants' rental lease/agreement for rent from April 2020 onward.

To qualify, applicants must live within the City of Henderson, have a current lease, demonstrate they are delinquent on rent or unable to pay rent due to a loss of income after March 2020, or have reduced hours of employment from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Other qualifying factors include income and household size. Applicants must earn 80% of the Median Family Income or below to qualify as determined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Section 8 income guidelines.

The funds will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis until depleted.

Interested applicants can CLICK HERE to open/print the COVID-19 Rental Assistance Application.

You can also pick up an application or have an application mailed to you by reaching out to the city's Community Development Department at (270) 831-1277.
