Rent Relief Program Resources

Virginia is administering relief for renters experiencing a negative financial impact due to the COVID-19 pandemic through the Virginia Rent Relief Program (RRP). You can now apply through Housing Opportunities Made Equal (HOME) of VA and other statewide partners. Staff will assist you in completing the online RRP application and obtaining the needed documentation. Through this state program, you can apply to receive funds to pay delinquent rent payments back to April 1, 2020 and forward to maintain housing stability. The total payments may not exceed a total of 15 months of rental assistance per household. Tenants in Chesterfield County or Fairfax County will need to apply directly through each locality’s program.
