New Rental Assistance Beginning February 2021

Beginning February 2021, there is additional rental assistance (WERA) for those who are facing eviction or are behind in their rent payments.

Here is a link to the state Department of Administration website with contact information for each county. Under the “Want to Apply?” section, click on the highlighted box that says “Your Local Community Action Agency,” which will take you to the WERA page.
