Arapahoe County offers rental and mortgage assistance for COVID-related income loss


With the goal of keeping families in their homes during the coronavirus crisis and related transitions, Arapahoe County has rolled out a new Rental and Mortgage Assistance Program (RMAP) to households that have experienced income loss directly related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This program offers support to community members who have been impacted by COVID-19,” said Commissioner Bill Holen. “This will help these residents focus on other important needs such as putting food on the table, child care and anything else they need to do to stabilize their households during this recovery.”

The primary threshold, in addition to any income losses being directly attributable to COVID-19, is households that have a total income at or below 80 percent of the AMI (Area Median Income), currently about $78,500 per year for a household of four.

The RMAP has detailed and specific requirements for eligibility (below), and it is an addition to the County’s existing rental and mortgage assistance programs. The funds dedicated to this program are limited, and completing this application does not guarantee assistance.

For more information and to determine eligibility, visit our Arapahoe CARES site. For assistance or questions, please call 303-738-8040 or email

  • Be an Arapahoe County resident
  • Have experienced a COVID-19-related income loss
  • Be income-eligible for the grant funding
  • Provide proof of having applied for unemployment compensation

  • Provide proof of income for every member of the household prior to submitting the application. (i.e. pay stubs, social security award letters, proof of child support, or proof of other income)
  • Applicants must provide a current signed lease or mortgage statement
