• UPDATE 9/14/2020: To better meet the needs of tenants, landlords, and property owners, the City of Spokane and Spokane Workforce Council has worked to streamline the guidelines for accessing CARES Act funding for much-needed rental assistance.
  • The CARES Act will now pay 100% of the overdue rent for up to four months and there will not be any requirements that property owners must live within City limits or have to forgive 20% of the overdue rent for the period covered by the program.
  • It is our goal to make these funds broadly available through the Spokane Resource Center and include all applicants who qualify within the income requirements. We thank the City of Spokane for responding with these vital resources to help stabilize many households in our community whose finances have been impacted by the pandemic.
