Emergency Rental Assistance

The Pawtucket Housing Authority (PHA), in partnership with the City of Pawtucket, has received a $300,000 Emergency Tenant Based Rental Assistance grant through the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) HOME Program to assist families who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

PHA will provide rental assistance to those persons that meet the eligibility requirements. This rental assistance will cover the time period of April 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021. Family households must meet the eligibility requirements outlined in the application packet. 

The application needs to be returned with the requested documentation. The assistance will be provided on a first-come first-serve basis. The maximum amount of assistance per household is $5,000. Assistance will be provided until the funding has been expended. PHA will determine the household need as applications are processed in the order received.   

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to e-mail Mary Michalczyk at or (401) 721-5192.
