In the city there are citizens who after the crisis generated by the coronavirus pandemic have been left in a vulnerable situation and have not paid the rent for their homes for months, something that affects their safety and the economy of the owners of those homes.
The aid plan provides that those most in need can request up to one year of rent to retroactively pay their debts and with them ensure that they will not be forced to evict.
From this March 29, those interested will be able to apply the applications from a web page created for this purpose. Applications can also be printed or forms can be picked up at some locations around the city to facilitate the process. The deadline to apply will be one month, so beyond April 30 no new applications for aid will be received.
According to the rules of the relief fund, up to $2,000 a month may be awarded for the rental of a home with a large family. This maximum amount will be limited to 12 months retroactively if it is shown that the rent has not been paid. Therefore, the most that can be received with $24,000.

Unemployment stimulus checks for 1,400
Rental assistance does not interfere with the issuance of unemployment stimulus checks of up to $ 1,400 that are being awarded to people who earned less than $75,000 in 2020.
“Payments will be automatically released to taxpayers even as the IRS continues to provide regular tax refunds,” IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig said in a recent statement.
An estimated 85% of Americans will be eligible for unemployment assistance payments.
There is a tool –Get My Payment– to know the status of the assignment of the check to each citizen. However, the first thing to check is if they are met the requirements to qualify to receive aid money.
