COVID and Rent Credit

Sometimes I get too involved to see things clearly, that is why this forum is so valuable.

I have a tenant who has really milked the whole COVID thing and is in arrears 6 months. They have applied for a county program that will pay their back rent (All monies are paid directly to the landlord). They are also on a rent credit program. Caution, here comes my bias…should our tax dollars help pay for their home? That is, should monies received from a federal grant program be counted towards rent credit?

I dont think it’s up to you to decide. If the program allows it then that is up to the county. Rent is rent. I’d take it and be happy.
