Hidalgo County launches the $7 million Mortgage and Rent Relief Program for those affected by COVID-19

EDINBURG – Hidalgo County on Monday launched the Mortgage and Rent Relief Program to assist rural county residents affected by the COVID-19 pandemic with short-term mortgage and rental assistance, Hidalgo County Community Service Agency Executive Director Jaime Longoria said on Monday. Qualifying residents will get assistance paying their mortgage or rent for up to two months.

Funding for this assistance program comes directly from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act enacted by Congress earlier this year. Then the Hidalgo County Commissioners Court set aside $7.5 million to fund this program.

“This program was designed to assist families who were affected by COVID-19 post March 13,” said Longoria. Households must make 200% or below the Federal Poverty Level to qualify.”

Applicants will need to provide proof that they have been laid off or are working reduced hours because of COVID-19's impact on the local economy.

To be eligible:

• You must have been affected by COVID-19 due to loss of wages, job, or illness
• You must be a rural resident of the County, or live in Granjeno or Sullivan City
• You must live below 200% federal poverty line

When applying you must have the following:

• Valid Picture ID for applicant
• Birth Certificate or Valid ID for everyone else in the household
• Proof you were affected by COVID-19, including income, furlough, shelter order, and quarantine information
• Income information for the past 30 days for the entire household
• Your Mortgage or Rent Agreement or receipts of past expenses
• And, you must submit a W-9 from your Mortgage Company or Landlord

Assistance will be paid directly to the landlord or the lender of qualified applicants.

“Since the beginning of this pandemic, we were all concerned with what the economic impact was going to be on families,” said Longoria. “I am proud to say that Commissioners Court has been proactive in assisting the community during these unprecedented times.”

We are accepting applications right now. Apply online at our website: www.hidalgocares.org OR you can apply over the phone at 956-205-7058.

Hidalgo County

In his capacity as the county’s emergency management director, Hidalgo County Judge Richard F. Cortez signed an order Wednesday requiring all Hidalgo County businesses to mandate the use of facial coverings by all employees and customers to slow the spread of COVID-19.

The order goes into effect at midnight Wednesday, but businesses will not have to comply with the order until midnight Friday. The order remains in effect until it is modified.

“I am growing more concerned as the number of infections in Hidalgo County continue to rise,” Judge Cortez said. “Despite abundant publicity that the rate of infection is increasing locally, too many residents appear to be ignoring commonsense preventive measures.”

While Governor Greg Abbott has restricted local mandates of any type of facial covering on residents of Texas, he said this does not apply to businesses. Therefore, Judge Cortez – upon the advice of his county health authority and health and human services director – has directed all businesses in Hidalgo County to develop a “Health and Safety Practices” plan that includes the directive for all people to wear facial coverings while inside covered businesses. Failure to abide by this rule could result in a fine of up to $1,000 for the business.

The four-page order was signed by Judge Cortez late Wednesday, one day after Hidalgo County saw its largest single day increase in new positive cases. With 143 new positive cases on Tuesday, the known number of positive cases in the county now totals 1,255 people. Seventeen of those have now died from complications related to COVID-19.

The order continues to strongly recommend that any person over the age of 3 in Hidalgo County wear a facial covering of their mouth and nose. Residents are also strongly encouraged to continue staying at home unless engaged in essential services and employ physical distancing of six feet or more when out in the public.

“Getting beyond this deadly virus will take a collective effort of everyone in Hidalgo County,” Judge Cortez said. “The single biggest complaint I am hearing these days is that too many people refuse to wear facial coverings. I hope this encourages people to do what we know will work to slow the spread of this disease.”
