Because of funding limitations and to allow time for processing, the Housing Preservation Program can only accept applications requesting help for rent and utilities costs incurred for Dec. 30, 2020 or earlier.
The program is available only to renters who have been affected by COVID-19 circumstances. To be eligible, applicants must earn less than 80% of the Area Median of Income, must be Idaho residents and must have at least one member of the household legally eligible to reside in the United States. Those receiving a federal housing subsidy are not eligible. Additional details are available at www.idahohousing.com/hpp-faq/.
Any approved payments are made directly to landlords or utility companies. Property owners, managers and advocates can submit requests on a renter’s behalf.
