Landlord Assistance Program
The program will open November 1 and close November 30, 2020, with the last payments made by December 15, 2020.
Due to the impacts of COVID-19, landlords are struggling to pay their mortgages and assist tenants with rent payments. The majority of landlords operate one or two units and do not have the reserves to support themselves and their tenants. In partnership with Community Works Carolina and Greenville Housing Fund, the Landlord Assistance Program will provide monthly rental assistance of $1,000 per month or up to 100% of the monthly rental to cover rent incurred between March 27, 2020, and December 1, 2020, for a maximum period of 9 months. Landlords may apply on behalf of their tenants, so long as the tenants' consent and provide the necessary documentation.
WHO CAN APPLY?
Each applicant must establish that the tenants:
Have a current household income no greater than the 80% AMI for Greenville County
Have experienced an income loss greater than 30% or have become unemployed since March 27, 2020
Are at least 30 days in arrears in the rental payments and
Reside in Greenville County
