Money to Help DC Residents Pay Bills

DC residents can apply for the STAY DC Initiative to help with paying bills

The District is freeing up millions of dollars to help residents struggling to pay their rent and utility bills.  My guest this morning is the DC Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development, John Falcicchio.

STAY DC will provide support to residents through: Back Rent: Funding can be used to pay unpaid rent going back to April 1, 2020.  Upcoming Rent: Money can be used to pay forward rent, up to 3 months at a time, Utility Expenses: Water, gas, and electricity expenses can be paid on your behalf. Extended Support: Housing support is available for up to 18 months, per tenant.  For more information go here:
