Editor's Note: This article, originally published May 25, was updated Aug. 4 to reflect the CDC's newest eviction moratorium extension.

The City of Arlington is accepting applications from Arlington tenants who have been impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak and are unable to pay past due rent and utilities or have become homeless. 

 Please visit the Arlington Housing Authority website to determine if you might be eligible for assistance and to access an application, which is available in English, Spanish and Vietnamese.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has extended the eviction moratorium from July 31 to Oct. 3, 2021 in counties experiencing substantial and high levels of community transmission levels of SARS-CoV-2. Click here to read more about the extension, which includes Tarrant County.

Tarrant County is also working to easily connect residents in need of rent assistance with available resources through the website, GetRentHelp.com.

All Tarrant County applicants can use this portal and depending on address, household size, and need, applicants will be routed to the appropriate rental assistance application.
