Help Spread the Word about Assistance Available to Help Renters and Landlords
BY FEDERAL HOUSING FINANCE AGENCY (FHFA)

Help may be available to renters having trouble paying their rent, utilities, or other housing costs – as well as landlords trying to stay afloat with tenants in this situation. State and local programs are distributing billions of dollars in rental assistance to help renters stay housed during the pandemic.

 

Help spread the word about the CFPB’s Rental Assistance Finder to help renters and landlords understand what this means for them and what they can do. The CFPB’s site also includes resources to help renters and landlords understand other resources to help navigate various financial hardships related to the pandemic.
