Skagit County Rental Assistance

Skagit County Rental Assistance Program provides financial assistance for rent and utilities to income-eligible Skagit County renters and their landlords. Helping Hands Project Organization is processing applications.

United States citizenship is NOT an eligibility requirement of this program.

Households must meet all three of the initial screening criteria to be eligible for Skagit County rental assistance:

  • Have a missed/passed due rent payment not paid or partially unpaid since March 1, 2020 and still occupying the residence
  • Your household income is at or below 80% of Area Median Income
  • Your household resides in Skagit County

Documentation
The following documents may be used to verify the above eligibility:

  • Proof of income, which can include paystubs, W-2’s or other wage statements, 2020 tax filings, or bank statements demonstrating regular income. If you have no income you can complete a certification of no income in the application.
  • Proof of Financial Hardship,  which could include a letter of termination from your job, documentation of unemployment benefits. Verbal verification is also allowable.
  • Proof of housing status, which can include a current lease or documentation of residence showing evidence that establishes a pattern of paying rent, or a statement from the landlord that verifies the applicant’s housing instability. Proof of past due rent or eviction notice, or past due utility notice.
We will be processing applications on-site at the Sedro-Woolley and Burlington libraries. Please bring copies of your household income stubs, utility bills and contact information for your landlord. Back rent and up to three months of future assistance is available.
