Our Beacon Hill legislators have created back in April. The Rental Relief Fund which was set up to help residents who have lost their income and are not eligible for employment benefits, and residents who, even with unemployment benefits, are still not able to make ends meet. The Beacon Hill legislators dedicated $3 million for the first round of funding, which began in April. Earlier this month, they opened up the second round of applications, and dedicated an additional $5 million to the program, bringing the total to $8 million.
As of today’s date, they have granted $818,000 to 257 households across 17 neighborhoods to cover rent for April and May. That means 257 individuals or families are no longer facing potentially losing their housing or being displaced thanks to this Fund. We are currently in the process of reviewing more applications with our partner agencies and will continue to distribute money until the fund is depleted.
