WILMINGTON, Del. – On Monday, Governor John Carney reopened the Delaware Housing Assistance Program to help renters and homeowners affected by the pandemic.

A total of $40 million in funding will be available to help those struggling to make payments. The program provides financial assistance to renters affected by shutdowns, closures, layoffs, reduced work hours, or unpaid leave due to the COVID-19 crisis. Under the revised program guidelines, eligible households can now receive up to $5,000 in assistance, with payments made directly to the property owner.

To be eligible for the program, applicants must reside in Delaware and have a maximum household income post-pandemic at or below 60 percent of the Area Median Income for the county they reside in.
