As people continue to see financial hardships with the ongoing pandemic, Utah has a new rental assistance program to help make ends meet.
Utah received $215 million in federal funds to help renters through the pandemic. The Department of Workforce Services has set up an online application to offer tenants rental relief.
The state funded a similar program last year, offering nearly $25 million in rental assistance through December 2020. Lance Soffee with the department says people from all corners of state applied to the program.
