Rental Assistance Program Applications Remain Open

Rental Assistance Program Applications Remain Open
Posted on 08/10/2020

The city of Aurora is accepting applications now from residents in need of assistance meeting their monthly lease payments because of financial hardships experienced during the COVID-19 crisis. The Rental Assistance Program is funded through the House Aurora Partnership and CARES Act funding from Arapahoe and Adams counties and offers assistance with monthly rental payments to qualifying residents.

The program grew out of a community survey to assess residents’ unmet needs during the COVID-19 crisis, which highlighted a lack of assistance on housing costs and food. The Rental Assistance Program and the city’s Mobile Food Pantry are a direct response to those needs.

The Rental Assistance Program is open to Aurora residents whose household income is 100% or less of area median income, who do not receive other public housing support vouchers, who have a current lease in place in the city of Aurora and who did not receive funding in previous rounds of the Aurora Rental Assistance Program. Applicants must be requesting rental assistance because of a financial impact from COVID-19, such as loss of income or employment, or medical expenses. Mortgage assistance is not available through this program.

Rental Assistance Program funds will be distributed directly to landlords/property managers and cannot exceed fair market rent as established by U.S. Housing and Urban Development.

Applications are available at AuroraGov.org/RentAssist, along with information about what materials residents will need to complete the application. Residents with questions regarding the program or who need accessibility or language assistance with the application can contact coa-rentassist@auroragov.org. 

Para ayudar a personas afectadas financieramente por la crisis de COVID-19, la ciudad de Aurora cuenta con un Programa de Asistencia de Renta, el cual les puede ayudar a pagar hasta dos meses de renta. Para obtener información en español, haga clic aquí.
