        • The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) will administer this new federal aid. DHHS will set criteria for applications. The federal government is requiring jurisdictions to prioritize households earning at 50% or less of the area median income and those who have been unemployed for more than 90 days prior to applying. Income can either be based on the calendar year 2020 income or monthly income at the time of the application (under the latter income must be verified every three months). The assistance can be used for both rent and utilities.
