Preguntas frecuentes

¿Soy elegible para recibir asistencia?

To be eligible, your household must:
• Be an Idaho resident. (If you live in Ada County, you must aplicar aquí.)
• Meet the program’s límites de ingresos.
• Be unable to pay rent or utilities because of a financial hardship related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Estoy subarrendando mi vivienda a otra persona, ¿soy elegible?

No. El contrato de arrendamiento debe ser con el propietario o administrador de la propiedad, no con el arrendatario del espacio alquilado.

Soy propietario de una vivienda y necesito ayuda para pagar mi hipoteca, ¿pueden ayudarme con ese tipo de asistencia?

No. The Housing Preservation Program provides assistance to renters who are unable to pay their rent or utilities because of financial hardship related to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you anticipate you’ll have difficulty making your mortgage payment, we encourage you to contact your loan servicer. If you have an Idaho Housing loan, there are options available.

How are applications prioritized?

Generally, applications are processed in the order in which they are received. However, in an effort to serve those in the most dire situations, the following prioritizations have been implemented:
• Households with incomes of less than 50% Area Median Income.
• Households with one or more members who have been unemployed for at least 90 days.

I am in a rent-to-own agreement or own a mobile home, am I eligible for assistance?

Yes, provided a member of your household:
• Is not a signee or co-signee on the mortgage on the property.
• Does not hold the deed or title to the property.
• Has not exercised the option to purchase. Additionally, if you own a manufactured home and have to lease your lot, you may be eligible for the lot/space rent and/or utilities.

Si ya he recibido asistencia, ¿puedo buscar asistencia adicional?

Yes, but you must submit another application to be considered for additional assistance. Eligible households may be assisted for past due rent and/or utilities and up to three months of future rent and/or utilities. Additional assistance may be approved when continued need is demonstrated and eligibility has been re-determined.

¿Cuánta ayuda puedo esperar?

La cantidad de asistencia recibida por cada hogar se basará en las circunstancias de cada hogar. Ningún hogar puede recibir más de un total de 15 meses de asistencia.

I am not past due yet, but I have experienced a financial hardship because of the pandemic. I know I will not be able to pay my rent next month. Should I apply?

Upon confirming your demonstrated risk and verifying your inability to pay upcoming rent, you will be considered for prospective rent/utility assistance. If you are seeking assistance with only future rent owed, you must wait to apply until 21 days before your rent due date. This is to prioritize applicants with the most urgent need.

Mi alquiler vence hoy, ¿pueden enviar un pago hoy?

No. Application review and processing may take up to 7-10 days. We will contact the applicant and payee upon payment approval and issuance. Please allow an additional 7-10 days for delivery by mail.

Si. La asistencia puede cubrir cargos por mora no excesivos.

Will you negotiate with my utility company/landlord?

No. Idaho Housing and Finance does not negotiate between a renter and their landlord or utility provider. Consider contacting Ayuda legal de Idaho para obtener asesoramiento legal.

Renters living in an income-based property with affordable rents (e.g., Tax Credit property), but not receiving a federal rental subsidy, are also eligible to receive assistance.
