CAC to receive money for rental assistance
The Washington County Community Action Council is to receive $57,630 from the state to subsidize the rent of low-income residents, according to information provided by the county.
The County Commissioners on Tuesday authorized the submission of the Rental Allowance Program application and grant agreement to the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development.
Approximately 60 households benefit each year from the Rental Allowance Program, according to the county.
The program offers a monthly subsidy of $150 to $250 to low-income families, depending on the size of the household, according to the information.
The subsidy is available to an eligible household for six months. During that time, the recipient completes a needs assessment with a case manager and attends monthly case management meetings.
