Rental Relief Program

During these difficult and anxious times as thousands are losing their jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic, local communities are working to help residents in need who may not be able to pay their rent. MCO Housing Services, LLC is working with communities to aid in the administration and distribution of this funding. Income requirements for program eligibility, the amount of funds being distributed to each party and the selection process will vary from community to community.

We have established this site to make the requirements easy to understand and to allow you to apply on-line quickly and efficiently. Remember, we are all in this together.
