MaineHousing has announced an expanded rental relief program, effective November 2, 2020.
The COVID-19 Rent Relief Program is for renters who cannot afford to pay their rent due to circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic. This program expands upon the previous rent relief program through MaineHousing. You can apply for this expanded program even if you applied and received funds under the other program.
This program expands upon MaineHousing’s previous rent relief programs by allowing both previous and new applicants to apply for a maximum of $1,000 per month toward their rent payments for October and November.
If funding remains available, applications for December rent will be accepted beginning on November 23, 2020.
