There is a grant available from the Metro West Collaborative who has partnered with The Affordable Housing Trust for renters that have lost income during the pandemic and resulting recession.
You may be able to qualify for the grant if you are a renter, not receiving any other government rental assistance, and have an income below 80% of the Area Median Income.
Monthly grants are $800 for a 1-bedroom, $900 for a 2-bedroom, and $1,000 for a 3-bedroom. Anyone interested in applying should contact Robyn Rufo at Metro West directly for an application and other program details (Robyn@metrowestcd.org or 617-923-3505 x 5).
Funding remains available following the August 12 deadline; applications are still being accepted, and funds will be awarded to qualified applicants on a first-come, first-served basis until the funding is spent.
