Tenants: Gather Everything You Need to Apply

  • Information for each member of your household to include name, birthdate and relationship to you.
  • Government-issued photo identification for each member of your household over the age of 18. Examples include: passport photo page, military ID, driver’s license or other state-issued ID. 
  • Income documentation for each member of your household to show your annual household income is less than 80% of the area median income.
    • The preferred method to verify the income eligibility of a household is to submit a signed 2020 or 2021 IRS 1040 Tax Form for each member of your household.
    • As an alternative, tenants can submit:
      • A copy of a letter of assistance for each household member dated on or after January 1, 2020, from one of the following programs: WIC, SNAP, Section 8 Housing or Free and Reduced Meals.
      • Two months of income statements (this can include: pay stubs, unemployment compensation, retirement, Social Security) for each household member.
  • A signed copy of your lease, including all pages of the lease agreement. If your lease is expired, you will need to submit a statement from your landlord indicating you are living in the rental residence under a month-to-month arrangement. 
  • An itemized rental statement showing current rental amount due and all other fees assessed for each month you’re requesting assistance.  
  • Documentation of any prior COVID-relief rental assistance received and what months that rental assistance covered.
