The township is launching a new Rental & Mortgage Assistance program designed to help residents who have had difficulty affording their rent or mortgage payments due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The program is available to both renters and homeowners in the township whose income has been negatively impacted by the pandemic, and who qualify as low- or moderate-income.
Assistance will be offered for up to three months, and can be used to cover either current payments or payments for multiple past months, dating back to March 1, 2020.
The Township will begin accepting applications online beginning May 15, 2021 and funds will be available on a first come, first serve basis. Prior to beginning your online application process, please take some time to review which documents you are required to submit so you can have them prepared ahead of time. A full list of required documents, eligibility information and program details is available at http://www.cherryhill-nj.com/COVIDHousingAssistance
