The City of Austin Housing & Planning and the Housing Authority of the City of Austin have created the Relief of Emergency Needs for Tenants (RENT) Assistance Program. This program helps pay for current, past, and future rents, plus fees related to your lease. RENT can pay for unpaid rent due between April 2020 and December 2021, up to 12-15 months. Future rent will be paid 3 months at a time.
