Do I need to pay rent and utilities during this pandemic?
Units owned by the Housing Authority
Yes, you are still responsible for paying your rent and utilities. For most families receiving Social Security or SSI there was no change in income. If your income changed, please contact your case worker. We encourage families to pay the rent using our ACH program. It is free of charge and your rent is automatically deducted from your checking or savings account on the third or fourth day of the month. Over 50% of the tenants at Westnor Apartments pay their rent using our ACH program. For more information, contact your case manager.
Participants of the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program
Yes, you are still responsible for paying your rent and utilities. Failure to pay the rent and/or utilities is a violation of the family’s obligation under the program. Your landlord could issue you an eviction notice. If you fail to comply with the program requirements, the Housing Authority can terminate assistance on your behalf. If your income changed due to COVID-19, please contact Dawn Minger for an income change.
I heard I am not responsible for rent during this pandemic?
This is false. You are still responsible for your rent, utilities, etc.
Is the stimulus check countable income?
No, the stimulus check is considered a one-time payment and will not be counted as income. The stimulus check should be used to pay rent, utilities, etc.
