Are you struggling with your rent?

The Hidalgo County Community Services Agency announced a financial program for residents who need help paying rent.

Jaime Longoria, the agency's director, said there are millions of dollars in funds from the federal government ready to provide support to families.

"There are over $26 million for those families that were affected by COVID-19, loss of job, loss of salary, or illness," Longoria said.

Among the requirements to qualify, applicants must provide proof of income and residency and have a combined household income at or below 80% of the area's median income.

Help is also available for people who are experiencing homelessness or housing instability.
