NRHA to Help Norfolk Residents Suffering Loss Due to COVID-19

Norfolk, VA (Aug. 31, 2020) – Norfolk Redevelopment and Housing Authority (NRHA) is providing assistance through the COVID-19 Housing Costs Relief Program to Norfolk residents who are experiencing loss of income due to the coronavirus pandemic and are struggling to pay their rent, mortgage or utilities.

“Many residents beyond those we serve through public housing are in trouble right now due to income loss,” said NRHA Executive Director Ron Jackson. “We want to help as best as we can by providing housing counseling and emergency assistance.”

The City of Norfolk has given NRHA $2 million to provide up to six months of rent or mortgage or utility costs assistance, in addition to post-purchase or rental and loss mitigation housing counseling. Qualifying residents must be Norfolk renters or homeowners not currently receiving a monthly rent or homeownership subsidy (such as through low-income public housing or through NRHA’s Housing Choice Voucher program). They must be able to provide documentation proof of loss of income due to their place of employment shutting down or being required to close to the public, of a reduction in wages and/or hours worked, or of having to stay home without pay to care for children in the household due to day care or school closure. Applicants must have filed a 2019 federal tax return in which the gross adjusted income does not exceed $99,000 for an individual tax return or $198,000 for a joint tax return.

Applications will be accepted Aug. 31 – Sept. 13 online at www.nrha.us. The COVID-19 Housing Costs Relief Program is being administered by NRHA’s HomeNet Homeownership Center. Through various programs, HomeNet partners with local lending institutions, attorneys, housing developers, Realtors and local, federal and state housing agencies to assist prospective homebuyers achieve homeownership.
