Is the County doing anything to alleviate rent?

All levels of government, have taken some action to prevent evictions/foreclosures during this time.  In Prince George’s County, no evictions from residential or commercial properties are allowed during this time.  

The County launched the Emergency Rental Assistance program through the Dept. of Social Services. That program is currently closed after receiving thousands of applications from residents.
We also seek to provide additional support to our non-profits that provide housing counseling for homeowners who are now unemployed. We will be providing more information about these resources as they become available. You may check our resources page for the latest information to assist tenants.
