Bay Aging is excited to announce the launch of the Virginia Rent and Mortgage Relief Program (RMRP) for the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula. This program is designed to support and ensure housing stability across the Commonwealth during the COVID-19 pandemic through providing financial assistance for rent or mortgage payments, on behalf of eligible households, directly to landlords/lending institutions. This assistance may cover payments past due beginning April 1, 2020 and is available to be immediately distributed to households in need. Basic eligibility includes the ability to produce a valid lease or mortgage statement in their name, experienced loss of income due to COVID-19, a rent or mortgage amount at or below 150% Fair Market Rent, and gross household income at or below 80% Area Medium Income. This program will prioritize households who have received a pay or quit, court summons, or notice of foreclosure.
