Have you had rent arrears as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic?
The Tenant Hardship Fund could clear some of the arrears. The fund will close on 31 March 2022 – apply now so you don’t miss out.
You may be able to get limited financial help if you’re a social or private sector tenant in Angus who built up rent arrears between March 2020 and August 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
You will need to apply for help and provide evidence that the pandemic affected your ability to pay rent.
How to apply
Tenants who live in Angus can apply online.
As part of your application, you will need to provide details about:
- your tenancy
- your rent arrears
- why the pandemic affected your ability to pay rent
You will also be asked to provide evidence of your income during the period. For example:
- evidence of your income from employment (wageslips; a reduction in your income, such as furlough or reduced hours)
- evidence of other income during the period (such as whether you were claiming benefits)
- bank statements
Funding is limited and applicants must provide full evidence of their arrears and why the pandemic affected their ability to pay their rent.
To apply for funding, please use our online application form.
