Gordon Oks Using $200M In COVID Funds For Revamped Renter Assistance Program

     Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon has signed legislation authorizing the use of $200 million dollars in coronavirus relief aid to launch a federal rental assistance program in Wyoming. 

       The program is not new, but it has been reorganized under the Wyoming Dept of Family Services. Residents can apply online starting April 27. 

     Applicants will need to meet income-based eligibility criteria and prove that their housing instability is related to the pandemic.

Funds provided from the program can be used to pay late fees, utilities, and other housing-related costs.
