COVID-19 Rental Relief Program 

The COVID-19 Rental 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 rental relief program through MaineHousing. You can apply for this expanded program even if you applied and received funds under the other program.

This program provides up to $1,000 per month for a maximum of three (3) months for rent not covered by any other Federal, State or Local programs. The three month period is for prior months and/or the current month. The applicant is the renter and the benefit is paid directly to the landlord. If the landlord agrees to participate in the program, the landlord is postponing the balance of the payment, not forgiving it, and further agrees not to evict for non-payment of rent for the month(s) for which the COVID-19 Rent Relief was applied.
