More COVID-19 Rental Assistance Is Here: What Do Tenants, Landlords & Communities Need?

The state is set to begin distributing millions of dollars in additional aid for tenants who are struggling to pay housing costs because of COVID-19. As the state finalizes new guidelines for what the assistance can be used for, and how people can apply, we check in on what we've learned from the previous housing assistance package. What have we learned about that program, and how will this shape the next year? 

This program begins March 15, and details about the program are available through the N.H. Housing Finance Authority.

Air date: Thursday, February 25, 2021.
