Baltimore City is expanding its rental assistance to help residents avoid evictions.
The Eviction Prevention Program will start later this month with $30 million in mostly federal coronavirus relief funds invested into the program.
These funds will help support things like financial assistance for past-due bills and back rent, relocation assistance for those who are evicted from their homes and legal assistance for residents facing eviction hearings.
According to WBAL-TV, Qualifying residents must:
Have a household income of 50% or less of the average medium income
Demonstrate a COVID-19-related financial impact
Provide proof of pending eviction proceedings.
