The Grant launch, which coincided with the end of the ban on evictions in Wales on 30 June 2021, is available to anyone who has built up more than eight weeks’ arrears since March 2020 (see eligibility below). The Grant replaces the Tenancy Saver Loan, which offered loans payable over a period of five years to cover arrears; these loans will now be converted to the new Grant to support tenants who have struggled to pay their rent as a direct result of the pandemic.
To apply for a Tenancy Hardship Grant, you must have had financial hardship due to the Covid-19 pandemic that meant that you have not been able to pay your rent.
PLEASE NOTE, THIS IS APPLICABLE TO TENANTS IN WALES, SWLA ARE CALLING FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO INTRODUCE A SIMILAR SCHEME IN ENGLAND
