Update on Availability of City & County Rental Assistance

February 3, 2021 9:22 AM

The City of Madison and Dane County recently announced the availability of up to $16 million of emergency rental assistance from the federal government that will be used to support payment of rent arrears. In addition, President Biden recently extended the federal eviction moratorium through March 31st. These emergency funds are essential to our community and we recognize the need for them to be dispersed quickly to support struggling tenants and landlords. In order to meet the anticipated demand for these funds the City and County are working with Tenant Recourse Center to open applications for emergency rental assistance the week of February 15th.

Our priority is to ensure community members stay safely housed. We are asking for property owners to work with us during this time to meet that goal. We know these funds will not meet the full needs of our community but we anticipate additional funds will be made available to us to continue expanding the program to cover the massive rent shortfall. We will ask, in exchange for providing allowable back rent for eligible tenants to make agreements those tenants will not be displaced. As a community we need to work together to ensure we can stabilize households as we all "Build Back Better" throughout this pandemic.

**********************************************************

La Cuidad de Madison y el Condado de Dane anunciaron recientemente la disponibilidad de hasta $16 millones de dólares para asistencia de emergencia para el pago de alquiler de parte del gobierno federal que serán usados para ayudar con los pagos de los alquileres atrasados. Además, el Presidente Biden extendió la moratoria federal de desalojos hasta el 31 de Marzo. Estos fondos de emergencia son esenciales para nuestra comunidad y reconocemos lo necesario que es repartirlos lo más rápido posible para ayudar tanto a los inquilinos que tiene dificultades como a los propietarios. Para lograr cumplir con la demanda anticipada de estos fondos, tanto la Ciudad como el Condado están trabajando con el Centro de Recursos para Inquilinos (Tenant Recourse Center) para abrir solicitudes para asistencia de emergencia para el pago de alquiler la semana del 15 de Febrero.

Nuestra prioridad es asegurar que los miembros de la comunidad se mantengan albergados bajo condiciones seguras. Le estamos solicitando a los propietarios de viviendas que trabajen con nosotros durante este tiempo para cumplir ese propósito. Nosotros sabemos que estos fondos no serán suficientes para satisfacer todas las necesidades de nuestra comunidad pero anticipamos que se nos facilitarán fondos adicionales para continuar   ampliando el programa para cubrir el déficit masivo de alquileres. Nosotros pediremos en intercambio por proporcionar los alquileres atrasados permitidos para inquilinos elegibles, que se hagan arreglos para que esos inquilinos no sean desplazados. Todos necesitamos trabajar juntos como comunidad para asegurar que podamos estabilizar hogares a medida que todos "Reconstruimos Algo Mejor" a lo largo de esta pandemia.
