Denver has reopened its rent and utility assistance program with a new online application. Check out the link below to learn more.

Ongoing, Rolling Applications

The new online portal allows renters to fill out a brief pre-eligibility form and then apply, if eligible. The portal allows renters to check the status of their application at any time.

One of three providers (Brothers Redevelopment, Jewish Family Service or the Community Economic Defense Project) will contact the applicant to process their application.

To qualify, you must:

  • Live in the City and County of Denver or have been displaced from Denver in the past 90 days;
  • Have a household income at or below 80% of the Area Median Income; and
  • Have experienced an unexpected financial hardship or other housing crisis.

You do NOT have to disclose your immigration status, and landlord participation is NOT required. Visit denvergov.org/RentHelp and to learn more.
