The City of Bowie COVID-19 Emergency Rent Assistance Program provides short-term rental assistance to eligible households who have lost income due to the COVID-19 pandemic and caused them to fall behind on their rent. While funds are available, the program will provide up to $1,500 to eligible households to cover the cost for back rent (arrears).

We encourage all City of Bowie residents who think they may be eligible to apply.
