 As of Tuesday, Kentucky's Governors Office launched a new website aimed at helping renters keep a roof over their head, while putting money back into landlords pockets.

The initiative called "The Healthy at Home Eviction Relief Fund" helps eligible landlords get reimbursed for missed rent payments, for eligible tenants, the program pays up to 90% of past-due rent. In some cases, two months of rent could be paid in advance.

The funds for The Healthy at Home Eviction Relief Fund were taken from $15 million in Federal CARES act money.

On Friday, Gov. Andy Beshear updated Kentucky's executive order on evictions to reflect the CDC's moratorium which protects renters both on the state and national level through December 31.

Governor Beshear says as of Tuesday more than 800 Kentuckians have started the application process.
