Assistance for landlords and renters
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – A community effort is underway to help landlords and tenants avoid evictions as the CDC eviction moratorium expires.
It expires June 30th, meaning those who are behind on rent due to the pandemic can be legally evicted.
Lexington government has over $20 million dollars in rent and utility assistance to keep landlords in business and renters in their homes.
A team from the Catholic Action Center, Central Kentucky Housing, and Homeless Initiative will be available to help for the next 4 weeks.
“I work with a lot of landlords and I have one property manager who actually worked with her tenants to complete the application process and she’s already received quite a bit of funding,” Executive Director of Greater Lexington Apartment Association Brenda Wells said.
Renters can go to the Mother Teresa Center for help applying.
These organizations are also hosting webinar training on Thursday at 1:00 p.m. for landlords and tenants.
