Additional Program Details

The State Assistance for Housing Relief (SAFHR) Program for Landlords provides rent assistance for households who have been impacted by COVID-19.


Landlords can apply on behalf of eligible tenants for rental assistance to be paid directly to the landlord.  Rental assistance includes up to 18 months of rent arrears for the period beginning April 2020 and up to 3 months of forward rent per application.  Eligible tenants can also apply for utility assistance through the SAFHR for Renters program.


If outstanding rental arrears are owed beyond SAFHR rental arrear awards, landlords must agree to non-eviction for remaining rental arrears and enter into a payment plan with tenant.  Total assistance cannot exceed a period of 12 months.

The brochure provides an overview of the program and is suitable for printing and distribution.
