Home has never been more important. Our homes have always provided shelter, but in the midst of the COVID pandemic, home has become so much more. Home is where we receive our health care, educate our children, conduct business, and connect virtually for worship services, community meetings, and social gatherings.

While moratoriums provide temporary protection from eviction, rent continues to accrue each month, leaving tenants unsure how they will pay the past due amounts, and leaving landlords without monthly income to pay bills and manage maintenance and upkeep.
The KEPP program is funded through the CARES Act. Program funds are limited, and applications will be processed in the order received. Tenants and landlords should apply as soon as possible to increase your likelihood of receiving assistance.
