President Donald Trump signed a coronavirus relief package into law late Sunday night. The $900 billion stimulus includes approximately $200 million for Maine to provide rental assistance.
There will be a new rent relief program in January once the Maine Housing works out details from the new legislation.
The COVID-19 Rent Relief Program is for renters who cannot afford to pay their rent due to the COVID 19 pandemic. This program expands upon previous rent relief programs through Maine Housing.
