NCSHA: Providing Housing Counselors with Rental Assistance Information During COVID-19

The National Council of State Housing Agencies (NCSHA) is a national nonprofit organization created by the nation’s State Housing Finance Agencies (HFAs) to advance efforts to provide affordable housing to those who need it.

NCSHA provides a Matrix of State HFA Emergency Rental and Housing Assistance Programs. This matrix shows critical components of state HFA emergency rental and mortgage assistance programs established in response to the COVID-19 national emergency.

NCSHA also maintains a map showing which state HFAs offer rental and housing assistance programs. NCSHA updates these materials regularly, and housing counselors can use these resources to assist their clients in identifying programs available for those struggling to pay rent.

Visit NCSHA’s website for more information.
