Rental Assistance Available

Help is now available for Tri-City renters who are unable to pay rent because of Covid-19 job losses.

The Tri-Cities Home Consortium received $700,000 in Federal HOME funding from the Department of Housing and Urban Development and began accepting applications for rental assistance on August 17, 2020.

The consortium consists of the cities of Kennewick, Pasco and Richland, in partnership with the Benton Franklin Community Action Committee. 

The program runs through December 31, 2020 or whenever funds are exhausted. 

The funds are available to help low-income individuals to maintain housing. Once approved, payment is made directly to the applicant’s landlord on their behalf.  

Call 509-545-4042 or email for information.
