The City of Garland has received federal funds to assist residents with overdue rent or mortgage payments caused by economic hardships due to COVID-19. The funds for rental and mortgage assistance will be available on June 1. To qualify, you must be a Garland resident, meet income qualifications, be behind on rent/mortgage payments due to COVID-19, and satisfy other conditions. 

To register for assistance, visit this webpage on or after June 1 and follow the appropriate link/contact information that pertains to your income level and need.

In preparation for June 1, please review the following basic eligibility requirements:

  • A family can receive up to three months’ worth of rent/mortgage assistance, or $3,600 (whichever is less).
  • To qualify, a family must make 80 percent or less of the area median income. To determine your income eligibility, refer to the Garland Area Median Income Table.
  • The family must have had a decrease in their income or an increase in expenses that ties directly to COVID-19. For example, this could be due to a person losing their job because their business had to shut down, or someone having to pay for day care expenses because their child was no longer in school.
  • Pre-screening registrations will be reviewed in the order received. For additional information about the registration process, please review the rental FAQ page and return to this webpage on June 1 for contact information to initiate the registration process.
