Arlington’s Housing Grants Program Offers Lifeline for Renters in Need
Exciting news for Arlington residents struggling to make ends meet: The County’s Housing Grants Program is here to offer a helping hand! Designed specifically to assist low-income households in the area, this fantastic initiative offers grants that can cover a substantial part of your monthly rent. How much you’re eligible for depends on various factors like your household income, the number of people living with you, and, of course, your rent amount.
Wondering if you qualify? Well, here’s the scoop: To be considered, your annual income has to fall within the county’s specified low-income bracket. And that’s not all—your personal assets also have to be below the $35,000 threshold.
Now, let’s talk about who exactly this program targets:
- Seniors who are 65 years or older—because retirement should be about enjoying life, not worrying about rent!
- Individuals who are totally and permanently disabled—a much-needed respite from ongoing financial challenges.
- Working families juggling jobs and kids—specifically, those with at least one child under the age of 18.
- Clients and patients enrolled in a County-operated or County-supported mental health program—because mental health support should extend to financial well-being too!
So, how do you get started? You can find all the nuts and bolts in the Housing Grants FAQ section. If you’re confident that you meet the eligibility criteria, go ahead and fill out the Housing Grant Application. Be sure to check out the Housing Grants – Administrative Regulations for any additional guidelines or clarifications you might need.
