Housing Provider CHAP Referral Form

The District of Columbia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) is pleased to offer financial assistance to District residents who meet the following requirements:
  • Are currently residing in the unit;
  • Do not benefit from any other federal rental subsidy;
  • Who owe arrears as far back as April 2020; and
  • Whose finances have been affected by COVID-19.
Payments will be made directly to the landlord or cooperative (co-op) board.

Landlords, co-op board members, and property managers: Use this form to refer your existing tenants/co-op members in need of rental assistance due to COVID-19. When you share their name and contact information, DC Government and our local non-profit partners will contact them by email or phone to invite them to complete a COVID-19 Housing Assistance Program (CHAP). We may also check if they've received other rental assistance that could affect their eligibility for CHAP. Please refer anyone owing back rent and currently residing in the unit. You do not need to have knowledge of their household income. 

Tenants/co-op members: Skip this form, and apply directly for rental assistance with the CHAP application
