Bremerton COVID-19 Rental Assistance Program Now Available
Bremerton, WA (March 25, 2020) – The Bremerton COVID-19 Rental Assistance Program was launched today to aid City residents facing financial hardship due to the outbreak.
The temporary program will help eligible residents pay for a portion of rent as a result of reduced income or job losses due to the coronavirus. The City’s program to help renters was established two years ago but has been expanded to include citizens affected by the pandemic.
“We are in a public health emergency. Rental assistance will provide some short-term relief to those who are facing a financial burden due to the response to COVID-19,” said Mayor Greg Wheeler. “I understand the impacts of the coronavirus on all of our lives, and I will continue to work diligently to explore options for assistance and communicate about resources available to our community.”
The Bremerton COVID-19 Rental Assistance Program is administered by the Bremerton Housing Authority. Those who live within the boundaries of Bremerton and meet income qualifications are eligible to apply. For details and income eligibility, please visit bremertonhousing.org.
