The purpose of the Rental Assistance program is to prevent eviction for Pierce County residents (including those living in the City of Tacoma) impacted by COVID-19 who are behind on rent. Applicants must qualify as low-income at or below 80% Area Median Income (AMI), but priority will be given to those under 50% AMI. Landlords and tenants can apply online. Click here to apply.
The program provides foreclosure prevention counseling and up to 4 months of mortgage assistance ($6,000 cap) paid directly to the loan servicer, bank or mortgage company of households who live in the city limits of Tacoma, have experienced loss of employment or reduction in wages due to COVID-19, and have an income at or below 80 percent Area Median Income for Pierce County. Homeowners outside the City of Tacoma in need of support should contact the Washington State Foreclosure Prevention hotline at 1-877-894-4663.
