Applications are now available for the Lincoln Rental Assistance Program, a collaborative program of the Lincoln Housing Commission and the Lincoln Council on Aging (COA), funded by the Community Preservation Act. Through the program, households that pay more than 30% of their income in rent and utilities and meet income and other eligibility guidelines may apply to receive a monthly subsidy to bring their rent down to 30% of income. Households may be in the program for three years with an annual maximum subsidy of $5,000. Households will be chosen based on a lottery that will be held in a public place. Potential applicants may pick up an application at Lincoln Town Offices, the Lincoln Public Library, the Department of Parks and Recreation, and Bemis Hall, download it from the Town of Lincoln municipal website, or contact the Lincoln Council on Aging to have an application mailed. Applications are due to the COA by 4:30 pm on December 31, 2019. For more information,see the Program Guidelines below or call Carolyn at the COA at (781) 259-8811.
