The City of Garland and other community partners are facilitating access to a variety of recovery programs for individuals, families and businesses.
RENTAL AND MORTGAGE ASSISTANCE
Garland provides housing assistance with funding authorized by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Securities Act (CARES Act). Income-eligible households impacted by COVID-19 may apply for assistance to help them stay housed during the pandemic. The program can pay up to three months of an eligible household's rent and mortgage payment, including arrears.
Garland residents who earn 80 percent or less of area median income can apply for rental or mortgage assistance through the Salvation Army. To register for this assistance, verify that your income is now less than 80 percent in the income table on this page and contact the Salvation Army at 972-272-4531 or email@example.com.
Participants must provide documentation of the impact of COVID-19 to their circumstances. Examples may include but are not limited to the following:
- Proof of job/income loss, temporary or permanent
- Reduction in work hours/income
- Copies of the following: valid, current state ID card, driver’s license or passport (for each adult in the household). Birth Certificate for at least each minor. Proof of income, if any (including current employment check stubs, unemployment benefits, TANF, etc.).
- Proof of occupancy for all household members
Additional documents may be needed as the applicant progresses through the process.
