The New Brunswick Rent Bank Program application launched today. The Rent Bank grant is intended to help renters with expenses directly linked to staying housed. If you are facing eviction, you may be eligible.
This grant provides financial support of up to $2,750, or the equivalent of two months' rent, whichever is less.
This can include:
-Assisting with a damage deposit
-Clearing rent debt (up to two months) on your current residence, to a maximum of $2,750
-Paying overdue essential utilities that threaten your tenancy
The funds from the Rent Bank grant are sent directly to the landlord or impacted utility.
