Small Landlord Emergency Grant Program Goes into Effect
New Jersey's Small Landlord Emergency Grant (SLEG) Program has gone into effect and will reimburse small residential rental property owners for lost rent revenue due to COVID-19 between April 2020 and July 2020. To take advantage of this NJ State Housing program, landlords must agree to forgive outstanding overdue rent and late fees that their tenant(s) accrued during this time period.
The application portal opened on Wednesday, August 19 at 9:00 AM and will remain open (for one week) until Wednesday, August 26 at 1:00 PM. When the application portal closes, applications will be reviewed and awarded in a computer-randomized order to give each application an equal chance of being funded. Applications will be evaluated for eligibility and completeness.
