Tenants in Pierce County who make below 80% of the area median income, or an income of less than $48,450 for one, are eligible for rental and utility assistance.

Tenants can apply for up to 12 months of back rent, for as far back as March 2020.  Per Pierce County Human Services, the utility assistance includes internet service.

Pierce County received nearly $58.6 million in rental and utility assistance this month.  Landlords can preemptively set up an account and let the county know which tenants have not paid rent.  The director of human services said that landlords can let them know which tenants are behind and begin the application process.  The county will then contact the tenants.
