The Lake County COVID Housing Relief Program will remit rent payments on behalf of approved program recipients directly to the recipient’s landlord or property owner or, in the case of utility assistance, directly to the utility company. A complete application for rental assistance includes paperwork that must be completed and submitted by the applicant’s landlord or property owner. In signing this consent form, I am authorizing the program provider to contact my landlord and/or property owner to request information, including but not limited to, rent and payment information and I hereby authorize my landlord to release such information. I also authorize the provider to release my information to my landlord which is deemed necessary to complete my application and receive assistance. I authorize my information to be transmitted via any method, including U.S. Postal Service, fax, and email.
