OlyCAP has money for rental and mortgage assistance in Clallam County

Olympic Community Action Programs has received over $200,000.00 from Clallam County to help households impacted by COVID with rent and mortgage assistance. Funds must be used by October 31, 2020, so residents are encouraged to apply immediately.

The household must have experienced a 50% drop in household income for at least 30 days since March 17, 2020 due to the COVID public health emergency. The household must have a monthly rent or mortgage payment greater than 30% of their income as measured from the past 30 days and be in arrears. Eligible residents can receive one month’s assistance in an amount not to exceed $2,000.00.  As with all housing assistance at OlyCAP, vouchers are issued directly to landlords or mortgage companies.

“We really hope to assist people who may have never heard of OlyCAP before and are not familiar with the social service agencies. We hope to help those that may not meet the criteria for the Emergency Rent Assistance Program (ERAP) program and will be working with our partners at Serenity house to receive referrals,” says Kathy Morgan, Director of Housing at OlyCAP.
