Rental Assistance (by Still Learning [NH]) Posted on: Feb 27, 2021 7:31 AM

It looks like this round of govt funding has rental assistance. NH also announced a new program about to start that sounds like it allows landlords to apply on behalf of tenants, payments direct to landlords, up to 12 months of payments, and retroactive payments to last April. I believe it has a mid March application roll out. Based on other posters sharing about their states, Iím guessing most states will offer something.

Missouri started such. It excluded the major populated countries. So read the find details, our provides for only the most rural countries, where few live anyways are on fixed income and didn't loose jobs cause there weren't any to begin with. These politicians and about as Du*mp as a box of rocks. Suppose they want to keep this money for themselves? Read the fine print of exclusions before getting excited.

Read my post on the NC Hope program. It puts HUGE restrictions on LLs to evict the tenant later, even if they stop paying again.

Our little town in San Diego county just passed legislation that will pay Landlord's directly for missed rent on behalf of the Tenant. However, there is a catch. Landlord's must sign off and agree to taking only 80% of what is owed and swear not to sue for the rest of the money, ever. I'm sure there are a few other little provisions that will ding Landlords, but getting 80% is not bad given that even with a judgement in eviction cases, Landlord almost never collect anything. It also provided that the LL will not evict the Tenant due to non-payment or partial payment. Doesn't sound very promising.

Tenant must apply for this and get Landlord's approval AND be low income, not on any other assistance program AND be current in rent now. It's only for all those missed months since Covid-19 started.

Missouri now has both a tenant initiated and a LL initiated program. The issue is that you have to waive any late fees, and you have to agree not to evict for 90 days (might even be 120).

I have 2 that would likely qualify, but both are finding other ways to pay. Slowly, but paying. Should catch up when they get their tax returns. So, we are avoiding the "help" with rent. One of mine DID lose her job and can't find a new one that she is able to do (and has now applied for SSDI, and is old enough to likely speed through the process) while the other was off a few weeks and went back to work. The one that went back works for a moving company. They laid everyone off when the Army hit the STOPMOVE in spring, as there was no work. Once the Army started moving people, he went back to work.
