News Outlook Hometown 2 February 18, 2021 5 CLASSIFIEDS COMMUNITY Gov. Beshear Launches $264 Million Healthy at Home Eviction Relief Fund In partnership With the Kentucky Housing Corpo- ration (KHC), Gov. Andy Beshear relaunched the Healthy at Home Eviction Relief Fund last Friday with an additional $264 million to keep Kentuck- ians safe and housed throughout the pandemic. “The Healthy at Home Eviction Relief Fund fol- loWs earlier, similar efforts to help our people stay in their homes, while also ’ "providing ‘ relief to land— lords and utility compa- nies,” said Gov. Beshear. “This is so important. With more Kentuckians rolling up their sleeves and receiving these safe and effective vaccines, we see the light at the end of the tunnel growing bright- er by the day. But it will take months before every- one can receive their shot Of hope, and until then, we need to ensure our people can stay healthy at home as much as possible.” Starting Feb. 15, tenants who qualify can apply for rent and utility assistance to cover their past-due and future bills. If ap- proved, lump sum, direct payments will be made to landlords and utility pro— viders. “Nearly a year into the pandemic, Kentuckians are still grappling with the economic effects of COVID—19,” said Winston Miller, KHC executive di- rector. “This assistance will help keep renters housed, allow landlords to get substantial payments for back rent and reduce the number of evictions in Kentucky courts.” The US. Treasury De- partment recently allocat- ed $297 million in federal Coronavirus Relief Funds to the state of Kentucky, Lexington—Fayette County Urban County Govern— ment and Louisville-Jef- ferson County Metro Gov- ernment to help renters impacted economically by COVID-19. The money will be distributed as three separate programs: 0 For 118 counties other than Fayette and J ef- ferson: teamkyhherf. ky.g0v 0 'To apply in Fay— ette County: covid19ren- terhelp.org 0 TO apply in J effer- son County: stop— myeviction.org The Team Kentucky Healthy at Home Eviction Relief Fund (representing 118 counties) will receive $264 million of the $297 million allocated for the state.

Those applying through the Team Kentucky portal also can receive help with past-due and future utility bills. “Throughout the pan— demic, many households have struggled with ex- penses,” said Wendy Smith, KHC’s deputy director of housing pro- grams. ‘This essential eviction relief can help renters get caught up on rent and utilities.” The Beshear administra- =tion~offeredia~Similar plan last" from " Septem; ber tO December, the state helped 4,135 households avoid eviction with nearly $15 million in assistance.
