RRP Application Prioritization

Equitable distribution of rental assistance throughout Virginia is a guiding principle of the Virginia Rent Relief Program (RRP). Prioritization is given to households who are currently facing eviction, whose income is at or below 50% Average Median Income (AMI), and/or include an adult who has been unemployed more than 90 days. Out of the households that have received payments since the inception of the program (as of July 1, 2021), more than 79% of all households are at or below 30% of area median income. In addition, DHCD seeks to promote RRP within historically economically disadvantaged communities. As of July 1, 2021, RRP data shows that of those who identified their race, Black households account for almost 52% of those served, and white households account for 23% of those served. Over 67% of households served have included children under 8 years old. To support this effort, DHCD has initiated the RRP Outreach and Engagement grant to strategically assist households and landlords who have limited access to the Internet or are not able to complete the online RRP application due to accessibility and language barriers.
