Important: New Program Aimed At Helping Renters


Dear Partners,

Idaho Housing and Finance Association is happy to announce the launch of a Housing Preservation Program dedicated to helping renters and landlords who have been affected by COVID-19. This program will provide assistance to those unable to pay past-due or upcoming rent or utilities as a result of COVID-19 events (primarily loss of income).

Information regarding this program can be accessed on Idaho Housing’s special COVID-19 website under the “Housing Preservation Program for renters and landlords” tab.

Renters may submit requests for assistance through our online application or by calling 1-855-452-0801. Property owners, managers, and advocates can submit requests on a renter’s behalf.

Because of limited funding at the launch of this program, promotion of Housing Preservation funds will be limited. We hope to expand the awareness of the program as additional funding is secured.


Sincerely,

Idaho Housing and Finance Association
