Bremerton expands rental assistance program to include those affected by COVID-19

Eligible Bremerton residents will have the opportunity to have a portion of their rent paid as a result of their reduced income or job losses due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The Bremerton COVID-19 Rental Assistance Program was launched Wednesday in an effort to help city residents facing temporarily or permanent income loss due to the pandemic. It is an expansion of the program already in place to help Bremerton renters.

“We are in a public health emergency,” said Mayor Greg Wheeler in a statement released Wednesday evening. “Rental assistance will provide some short-term relief to those who are facing a financial burden due to the response to COVID-19. I understand thei mpact of the coronavirus on all of our lives, and I will continue to work diligently to explore options for assistance and communicate about resources available to our community.”
