State of Kentucky Starts New Webpage for Home Eviction Relief Fund

Some of the details regarding the application for the funds include, all landlords who are eligible can be recouped for rent payments which tenants missed and also get some advance rent payments to help keep tenants where they are currently living. For eligible tenants, this program pays a maximum of ninety percent of over-due rent and could also cover a couple of months of rent in the future, among other details. On Friday, government officials updated Kentucky’s executive order on evictions to reflect the CDC’s moratorium on residential evictions through the end of the year. Evictions in the state were suspended back on March 25, 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic took hold. Both the team Kentucky fund along with the Louisville/Jefferson Eviction Prevention COVID 19 Relief Fund re additional programs being offered to help Kentuckians pay rent during the pandemic.
