Who is Eligible?

Your tenant is likely eligible if their household income is <80% of the area's median income, and they are at risk of losing their housing due to a financial hardship brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.  


How Do I Apply?

Verify tenant eligibility, collect the required information, and complete the application.  Applications are open now.

Note: Beginning November 1, 2021, the SAFHR program will no longer issue payment to pre-paid cards or payment apps.  All payments must be issued to a valid personal or business checking account or by check.  The SAFHR program is committed to providing assistance to those in need, so please contact us if your circumstances don't allow for these payment methods.
