Be aware - the Emergency Rent program IERA / IHDCA has changed.
They are NOT approving the same people they approved multiple times earlier.
I just lost several thousand $$$ waiting for re-applications to be processed, only to be denied. AFTER their rent accumulated.
These folks are legit needy. Covid multiple times, lingering effects, truly unable to work, should, applied for disability but that takes a LONG time, so I won’t be able to collect much.
I no longer accept that program even tho they paid several thousand earlier. Too much trouble, no communication, and now making us wait for processing before denying the people they had been helping for months.
As a side note, we stopped accepting rent assistance from the local aid agencies and charities. If you cannot afford the home or borrow from your granny, it’s time you find a place you CAN afford.

PS I waited for the state’s emergency funds for these folks
1. The state had been helping them already. These were renewals.
2. Both are hoarders. I did not want another project. Once evicted the homes will sit empty for a while until we can get to them.

I am having the same problems as well. Applied to the program back in January and as of today still not a cent or even a reply from them. I'm going the same way. --24.180.xx.xx

Our county has an assistance program for families impacted by covid. In eviction court yesterday (I was observing), two cases were put in abeyance for 90 days because the tenant had applied for assistance. Applied, not approved.
With our rooming houses, I am no longer evicting for nonpayment of rent. I'm just terminating their agreements and then evicting them for not moving out. --172.58.xxx.xxx

I am blessed that we had no one get buried or behind during Covid. The two who did get behind I filed on at day 7 and they caught up completely before the court date.
I don't play with Govt entities for rent assistance, ever. It's a rule I learned from 23 years in the military: you accept Uncle Sam's money, you play by his rules, and sometimes his rules mean you don't get the money even though you played by his rules.
Nope. My business will never be dependent on a Govt bureaucrat to shuffle papers. The rent is due when it's due. As you said, if someone is in dire straights, they can borrow from family, friends, former co-worker, etc. Then when the Govt assistance money comes in, they can pay those folks back due to having several months of rent payment alleviated. Or, they can acknowledge reality and move.
I still find it incomprehensible that NO OTHER BUSINESS was forced to provide their goods and/or services for free during Covid, except for land lords. We were told to wait...."help is coming"... Yeah, and when it showed up, it was little, it was late, it came with demands, provisos and caveats, it was tough to wade through, and many folks lost their properties while waiting for the cavalry to show up. Silly. Unconstitutional. I think any LL who lost a unit during the eviction moratorium should be able to sue the Govt for full compensation of all losses as well as 5 years worth of future rent profits based on their average tax returns for three years prior because they would have most likely been able to salvage things had their Constitutional rights of life, liberty, and PROPERTY been protected.

We just added up the unpaid rent we waited for. $10,000.
Now we’ll start the eviction process so the fees will add up.

I had two COVID non-payers and evicted both in a short window of time that appeared in Jan 2021 before the moratorium was reimposed. I refuse all local and federal aid as a matter of policy. THere are too many restrictions on me and there is no such thing as free money. I remain small with paid off properties to keep that freedom. --216.23.xxx.xx
