Healthy at Home Eviction Relief Fund
In partnership with the Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC), Governor Andy Beshear relaunched the Healthy at Home Eviction Relief Fund on Monday with an additional $264 million to keep Kentuckians housed throughout the pandemic.
Starting Feb. 15, tenants who qualify can apply for rent and utility assistance to cover their past-due and future bills. If approved, lump sum, direct payments will be made to landlords and utility providers.
