Washington County (KDKA) – As cases continue to rise due to Delta variants, our region is still exploring how to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, but the local county is. Also fights against the expulsion of the peasants.
The state of Washington County and local leaders want to remind those struggling that rent assistance is always available.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a resident or a landlord, state officials say an Emergency Rental Assistance Program can help.
On Tuesday, Assistant Secretary General of the Department of Social Services, Meg Sneed, and Washington County officials joined forces to remind people that while the moratorium on the eviction of peasants is gone, help is still there. .
Executives said the emergency rental assistance program can help people facing evictions pay past dues and future rents, utilities or other costs.
âFor tenants in difficulty, this program can be an intervention that can get them back on track. But this program does more than just help tenants. Homeowners can also benefit from it. Increasingly, it helps landlords settle upcoming unpaid rents, house people and provide financial security, leaving tenants and landlords with stability, âsays Sneed.
Sneed encourages landlords and property owners to be considerate during this difficult time, stressing that evictions will not help anyone and that the wave of evictions will negatively impact the economic recovery. ..
Leaders said they needed skills to get help, and all counties in cities across the state were funded.
In Washington County, we signed a funding agreement through a company called Blueprints.Click for more information on how to apply here..
