Alexandria Now Offering Emergency Rent Relief for Residents Affected by COVID-19

(Updated at 10:30 a.m.) Alexandria is now accepting applications for $600 per month for three months of emergency rental assistance for residents affected by COVID-19 and who are living beneath the median household income.

The emergency funds have been made available via $13.9 million from the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, and will be provided to residents regardless of their citizenship status, according to the city. Additionally, the program flier has been translated into English, Spanish, Arabic, and Amharic.

Applications are being accepted through Alex311 through Friday, May 29. Residents can also call 703-746-4990 for a hard copy of the application. The first round of payments could be made immediately upon approval, according to the city’s housing director.

“Applications received after May 29 will be reviewed on a rolling basis contingent on funding availability,” notes a city release.

The funds will be available to households that do not exceed the following asset limits:

Household size  Asset Limits
 1-person household  $2,205
 2-person household  $2,520
 3-person household  $2,835
 4-person household  $3,150
 5-person household  $3,403
 6-person household  $3,655

There have been numerous cries for a moratorium on rents throughout the city, including in Arlandria and in the West End.
