Commissioners Accept Grant to Assist County Renters

02/10/2021

Bernalillo County commissioners have accepted the $5 million emergency rental assistance grant. The Emergency Rental Assistance program makes available $25 billion to assist households that are unable to pay rent and utilities due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The funds are provided directly to states, U.S. territories, local governments, and Native American tribes.  

The grant, made available to Bernalillo County by the United States Treasury, has been earmarked for qualifying renters outside the city limits of Albuquerque, but within the county.

“Bernalillo County commissioners want to continue to do everything in our power to help struggling residents during this pandemic,” says County Commission Chair Charlene Pyskoty.  “If this can help keep people in their homes and off the streets, then it’s a win for the county and a win for renters.”

The target date that Bernalillo County will begin taking applications is March 8.

The grant was accepted by the commission on a 5 to 0 vote.
