Has Covid made it hard to pay rent or your mortgage?

  • Did you have a COVID-related reduction in employment hours?
  • Did you have to take time off work to care for a family member that had COVID?
  • Did a reduction in employment lead to a loss of medical insurance and they had to pay for medication out of pocket which would have otherwise gone to rent?
  • Did you end up with addition child care expenses because a facility closed?

IF you answered YES to any of these questions, you could be eligible to receive help with your rent. Contact the folks at Idaho Housing to find out how you may qualify. Funds are still available to help.
