Thursday, January 12, 2023

The City of Toledo is proud to announce that the Toledo Lucas County Emergency Rental Assistance Program (TLCERAP) has received an additional $34 million from the U.S. Department of Treasury. This funding will allow the Rental Assistance application portal to remain open and offer rental assistance for eligible households.

The program offers assistance for current and future rent, past due rent, late fees, new renter fees, security deposits, utility deposits, and utility payments for up to 18 months.

In addition to providing rental assistance, a portion of the funds will be used to support housing stability programs and the development and preservation of affordable housing units in the city.

To be eligible for the program, households must meet specific criteria, including being the named landlord or tenant on the lease and being at or below the maximum household income requirement. Landlords must also meet certain requirements to be eligible for the program.

The program has established priorities for granting assistance, in accordance with guidelines set by the U.S. Department of Treasury.

Applicants who have previously received assistance from TLCERAP should not create a new application to request additional assistance. Please note that applicants who have met the program limits will not be eligible for any additional assistance.
