Housing Families, Building Communities, Creating a Stronger Frederick

A Celebration of Success!

For our resident, Greer Garcia, caretaking just comes naturally. After years of hard work, she received her Registered Nursing degree from Frederick Community College. Her story demonstrates great determination, resilience and fortitude. We are so proud to watch her achieve her dreams. She wants to share her story so that she can motivate and inspire other women who may be facing similar challenges.

Ms. Garcia was tired of working the same, unfulfilling jobs. She began seeking alternatives and asking for guidance. To read her entire story, click HERE.

 

Special Notice to all Public Housing Residents:

PIH Notice 2021-29 Established Guidance for the “Extension of Time and Required Disclosures for Notification of Nonpayment of Rent

Below is IMPORTANT information regarding lease terminations involving non-payment of rent:
The U.S. Department of Treasury’s (“Treasury”) Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) program makes funding available to assist households that are unable to pay rent or utilities. The funds were provided directly to states, U.S. territories, local governments, and (in the case of the first program, ERA1) to Indian tribes or Tribally Designated Housing Entities, as applicable, and the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands. Grantees use the funds to assist eligible households through existing or newly created rental assistance programs.
In guidance and FAQs, Treasury advised that participants in HUD-assisted rental programs (including the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV), Public Housing, or Project-Based Rental Assistance programs) are eligible for the ERA program and may receive assistance for the tenant-owed portion of rent or utilities that is not subsidized. In FAQs for PHAs and HCV landlords, PIH clarified that this assistance can include rent arrearages and utilities owed over the utility allowance. The FAQs include additional guidance on interim reexaminations, income calculations, and additional considerations for private landlords participating in the HCV
program.
To learn more about how to apply for ERA go to the Religous Coalition website.
State and local ERA grantees can also be accessed from Treasury’s website using the link “Find rental assistance in your area.”
Leases may not be terminated due to nonpayment of rent until at least 30 days have passed after a tenant receives the notice.

If you have any questions or concerns about this notice, please contact the leasing office (301) 662-8173.
