Federal Rent Assistance

Are you a renter in Norfolk or a landlord with tenants? New federal funding is available in Virginia for rent assistance to avoid eviction.

Governor Ralph Northam announced the additional funding for the Virginia Rent Relief Program this week.

State law requires landlords to work with their tenants to apply. Interested tenants should check eligibility at www.dhcd.virginia.gov/eligibility or by calling 2-1-1.

Tenants may be eligible for rent arrears payments back to April 1, 2020 and up to three months of payments into the future.

The total payments may not exceed 15 months of rental assistance per household.
