Marysville announces Community Rent Relief Grant program

CARES Community Rent Relief grants applications open July 30-Aug. 13

Marysville lower-income residents who have fallen behind on rent payments due to the COVID-19 pandemic are invited to apply for new Marysville CARES Community Rent Relief Grants. The two-week application period runs through Aug. 13. The Marysville City Council unanimously approved this new grant program at its meeting Monday evening. 

“As the COVID pandemic persists longer than any of us hoped, I have heard from many Marysville residents that they are increasingly worried about paying the bills,” Mayor Jon Nehring said. “A helping hand may offer a sense of hope in this difficult season.” 

Rent relief grants of up to $1,500 per household are available to residents who meet these criteria: 

  • Live within Marysville city limits, 
  • Are behind in rental payments, 
  • Are economically impacted by COVID-19, 
  • Were not delinquent on rent for six months prior to March 1 (Sept. 2019-Feb. 2020)
  • Current median monthly household income is below these amounts (60% of area median):
Number in HouseholdMonthly / Annual IncomeNumber in HouseholdMonthly / Annual Income
1 person$2,725 / $32,7005 persons$4,208 / $50,940
2 persons$3,115 / $37,3806 persons$4,520 / $54,240
3 persons$3,505 / $42,0607 persons$4,835 / $58,020
4 persons$3,895 / $46,7408 persons$5,145 / $61,740

Tenant applicants will need to verify income, landlord and/or living arrangement. When grants are awarded, checks will be sent to the landlord pending documentation and approval. Find more information and the application at 

This grant program will award up to a total of $250,000 in federal CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security) Act funding distributed through the State of Washington. The city previously awarded other CARES funding through business rent relief grants and financial support of local community services responding to the COVID pandemic.
