Emergency Rental Assistance

BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- Bloomfield residents struggling with paying their rent as a result of COVID-19 can get temporary assistance from the state. Qualifying applicants may be eligible for up to six months of assistance.

“COVID-19 has caused many of our residents to lose their source of income or have it significantly reduced, making paying rent especially difficult,” said Mayor Michael Venezia. “The state is offering to provide temporary assistance that I hope will go a long way towards providing stability to our residents. If you are having difficulty paying your rent, please visit to find out if you qualify for help.”

Qualifications for assistance include having a gross income at or below the limits for the county that they reside in, be a New Jersey resident that is renting a unit in the state, be up-to-date with rent as of March 2020 and have a substantial reduction in income as a result of COVID-19.
