Help for those affected by Covid-19
In October 2021, the government announced a scheme to help those at risk of becoming homeless due to a build-up of arrears. This is funded from the Contain Outbreak Management Fund (COMF).

In Kent, the scheme is being operated by Kent Housing Group, a forum for housing organisations in Kent and Medway. The deadline for applications is 30 June 2022.
