Tenant Hardship Fund: COVID-19 related rent arrears

Limited financial assistance may be available for social or private sector tenants in Angus who built up rent arrears between March 2020 and August 2021 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The funding is to help reduce rent arrears built up during the pandemic.

You will need to apply for the assistance and provide evidence that the pandemic affected your ability to pay rent.

How to apply

Tenants who live in Angus can apply online.

As part of your application you will need to provide details about:

  • your tenancy
  • your rent arrears
  • why the pandemic affected your ability to pay rent

You will also be asked to provide evidence of your income during the period. For example:

  • evidence of your income from employment (wage slips; a reduction in your income, such as furlough or reduced hours)
  • evidence of other income during the period (such as whether you were claiming benefits)
  • bank statements

Apply for the tenant hardship fund

Funding is limited and applicants must provide full evidence outlining their arrears and why the pandemic affected their ability to pay their rent.
