SAFHR Program Overview
WHAT IS SAFHR FOR RENTERS?

Eligible tenants can apply for financial assistance to be paid directly to their landlord or utility provider. Financial assistance includes rent and utility arrears for the period beginning April 2020 and up to 3 months of forward rent and prepaid fuel utility assistance. Utilities include gas, electric, water, sewage/waste water, fuel (propane, wood, etc.) and trash. You may apply for utility assistance even if you are not applying for rental assistance.
