Residential Assistance Program


The GAP Rental Assistance Program is designed to assist residents facing a rent increase to bridge the gap between an applicant’s income and the cost of rent. 

GAP Rental Assistance Program applicants cannot exceed 80% AMI. Applications will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. The program will remain open until funds are exhausted. Rental assistance payments will be made directly to the landlord. The applicant must obtain a W-9 form from the landlord for the City to facilitate payment. If you are currently receiving benefits from any other agency, you are NOT eligible to apply for this program. Incomplete applications will not be processed.
