Eviction relief fund can provide assistance to renters across the state

By Susan Riddell, Communications Manager
For rental assistance, both landlords and tenants need to apply online.

The Kentucky Healthy at Home Eviction Relief Fund can provide significant debt relief for renters who owe on their rent or utilities and help landlords and utilities receive payments in 118 counties across the state.

In partnership with the Kentucky Housing Corporation, the program uses a portion of the $265 million in federal Coronavirus Relief Funds that Kentucky recently received.

Fayette County and Jefferson County also received funding and have their own programs.

Tenants can apply for assistance through the Team Kentucky portal for rent and utilities dating back to April 2020, and for three months of future payments. For rental assistance, both landlords and tenants need to apply online.

There are some federal guidelines that both renters and landlords must meet.  Those details are on the website, teamkyhherf.ky.gov and in the attached documents (English version/Spanish version).

Constituents in Fayette County can go to covid19renterhelp.org to apply.

Jefferson County residents should visit stopmyeviction.org

For all other 118 Kentucky counties, Kentuckians should go to teamkyhherf.ky.gov.
