A temporary rent supplement that provides up to $500 per month, paid directly to landlords for eligible households with dependents, and $300 per month for eligible households with no dependents. This support will help eligible low- and moderate-income renters struggling to pay their rent as a result of loss, or income reduction, due to COVID-19. At this time, it is an initial three-month program.
Update June 19th:
The B.C. government has announced the extension of the provincial temporary rental supplement (BC-TRS) program until the end of August 2020.
This program provides $500 per month for eligible households with dependents, and $300 per month for eligible households with no dependents.
Those already approved for BC-TRS do NOT need to reapply. Instead, they will receive an email asking them to confirm they plan to live at the same address through July and August.
