Small Landlord Emergency Grant (SLEG) Program
Today, Governor Murphy announced the Small Landlord Emergency Grant (SLEG) Program, which will reimburse small residential rental property owners for lost rent revenue due to COVID-19 between April and July 2020. By passing the benefit on to their tenants and forgiving outstanding back rent and late fees, landlords will not only receive necessary funds to stay afloat, but will also continue to provide stable housing in what has become an unstable time.
The New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency is proud to join the effort in providing much-needed relief to New Jerseyans who have felt the economic impacts of the COVID-19 public health emergency. NJHMFA recognizes there is a long road ahead and is dedicated to maintaining housing stability and the health of our communities.
