Current COVID-19 Updates
Staying Safe in Pierce County

COVID-19 is still present in our communities. Mask guidance will follow the local health order and the state health order. The best protection for individuals and communities is to get a COVID-19 vaccine. For additional information, please see the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department website.


Pierce County Rental and Utility Assistance

Pierce County Human Services and the City of Tacoma have received funding for rental and utility assistance for tenants impacted by COVID-19 and are behind on rent. This program is only for renters. Homeowners are not eligible to apply for rent or utility assistance at this time, but we hope to have mortgage assistance available soon. 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.
