Are you struggling to pay your mortgage, rent or utility bills because of the Coronavirus?
Prince William County, Manassas and Manassas Park residents can receive financial support through the Prince William County Office of Housing and Community Development’s Emergency Housing Assistance Program (EHAP).
The funds, which are from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), are offered through the Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, according to a release from Prince William County. They are being distributed to eligible individuals and families.
Households may receive assistance for up to three consecutive months.
To be considered, community members must have lost income for certain reasons on or after March 1. Those reasons include illness, acting as a caregiver for anyone who had the Coronavirus, or staying home to watch their young children.
Eligible families shouldn’t have received funding from other agencies for mortgage, rent or utility payments. Their income also can’t be above 80 percent of the median income that the HUD set per household size for the metropolitan area.
Applicants must complete an application and provide documents, such as verification to support an income loss claim, utility bills, lease, mortgage statement, proof of income before the Coronavirus, proof of income for the past 30 days, and household composition.
Payments will be given to the landlords, mortgage companies, and utility companies.
Additional details about the Emergency Housing Assistance Program can be found on the county’s website.
Local residents may apply through the online portal, or by downloading the English version of the application or Spanish version and emailing it EHAProgram@pwcgov.org. Anyone who can’t submit the application through these methods or needs help finishing it may call 703-792-7538.
