Help on the way for Renters Hurt by COVID-19

Tennessee housing officials say the state will receive about $458 million in federal COVID-19 money for rent relief.

The Tennessee Housing Development Agency says it is in the process of setting up a web portal and call center and preparing staff to review and process thousands of payments to landlords and utility providers.

The agency says it anticipates that it will take at least eight weeks to be able to give out the money. Additional federal guidance is expected later this month.

It is designated as part of the Covid-19 Rent Relief Act of 2020.

Those interested can sign up on the Tennessee Housing Development Agency website at thda.org.
