Mortgage and Rent Relief Program

Having trouble paying your rent or mortgage because of COVID-19? 

The Hidalgo County COVID-19 Mortgage and Rent Relief Program can help!

The Hidalgo County Mortgage and Rent Relief Program is a short-term rental and mortgage assistance program designated to help rural Hidalgo County residents, and those living in Granjeno and Sullivan City, who have been laid off or had their incomes impacted by the spread of COVID-19. Funding for this assistance program comes directly from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, so only households making below the 225% Federal Poverty Level qualify for help.

Note: People living in incorporated areas of Hidalgo County should contact their local municipality to determine if that city is providing rent and mortgage relief under federal CARES Act funding.
