The maximum amount of assistance per household over a five year period may not exceed $5,000 unless an exception is approved based on individual need and circumstance. Assistance is provided as a grant, with no interest and no repayment requirement. The Housing Resiliency Grant Program is available to:

  2. tenants and owners of single family rental housing provided the tenant is income eligible. In the case of manufactured or mobile homes, ownership of the lot is not a prerequisite for participation in the program.
