PHOENIX – The Glendale City Council approved a program designed to help tenants and property owners apply for assistance if they’ve been affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

The Property Owner Preservation program is designed to allow landlords to apply for federally funded assistance on behalf of their residential tenants if they are struggling to make rent because of the pandemic.

“Glendale is aware of how hard this pandemic has been on both landlords and tenants,” Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers said in a press release.

“I am proud of how quickly staff thought outside the box to not only create an entirely new program but also get it up and running to help landlords protect their property while keeping tenants in their homes.”

The program will cover up to six months of rent payments with a maximum of $2,000 per month per unit.

Preference is given to individual single-family rental owners with four units or fewer.

Vacation rentals are not eligible for assistance.

Funding for the program is provided by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Applications are open Nov. 1 to Nov. 15.
