The Tarrant County Commissioners Court has allocated funds to assist with rental payments for those directly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Assistance is available on a first-come, first-serve basis for up to three (3) months subject to periodic review of eligibility. Tarrant County will make final determination of eligibility and the amount of assistance provided.
Should you not be eligible for this program, you may be referred to another assistance program or organization. In order to receive assistance through this program, the property landlord must be willing to provide information to document unpaid rent and be a willing program participant. Any and all funds granted will be paid directly to the landlord.
