COVID-19 Rental Relief Program


This Rent Relief Program ended on December 30, 2020. We will begin a new program in January, but need time to work through federal guidance because of how it is funded.

The program may change, and we cannot consider an application submitted after 11:59 PM on December 30, 2020. We will still process complete applications submitted before 11:59 PM on December 30. If you have questions, please email us: rentrelief@mainehousing.org.

We will announce new program details here and on our social media platforms as soon as we can. Thank you!
