Apr. 3—Skagit County nonprofits will begin distributing $8.9 million in assistance Monday for those struggling to pay their rents during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sarah Hinman, housing and community services manager with county Public Health, said the federal funding will be able to help about 2,000 households with rent, utilities and other housing costs.

In this iteration of the program, payments can cover up to 15 months of back rent at up to 150% of fair market rent, as determined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
