Additional $34 million grant for Toledo Lucas County Emergency Rental Assistance Program

The Toledo Lucas County Emergency Rental Assistance Program has received an additional $34 million grant from the US Department of Treasury to maintain operations, according to a statement from the City of Toledo.

The organization will be able to support nearby residents who require assistance this year with rent and other housing costs thanks to the additional funding.

On Tuesday from 9 am to 5 pm, specialists from the City of Toledo helped applicants with their applications at the Mott Library.

$34 Million Will Be Distributed

The initiative will aid people until all $34 million has been distributed to those in need or used to sustain affordable housing, with assistance payments allowed to last up to 18 months.

Applicants who qualify must have a valid lease and earn less than the maximum income threshold.

In the first two hours, about 60 people requested assistance.

“There are people that we identify in our community who aren’t internet savvy, don’t have email addresses, and can’t upload,” said April Weber, a program specialist for emergency rental assistance.
