Housing Assistance

Many people are unable to pay rent, mortgage, or utilities due to COVID-19. Read below for available supports.

A new Rental Assistance Program is targeted to individuals and families who may be falling through the cracks because they are ineligible for unemployment benefits but have lost income due to COVID-19. For qualifying individuals, monthly rent payments of up to $1,500 can be made directly to landlords. If you are in Salt Lake County, call 211 or contact Salt Lake Community Action Program at 801-521-6107
