As of December 31, 2020, the Delaware Housing Assistance Program (DE HAP) is not currently accepting new applications from the general public. New rental assistance funded by the recent relief bill is expected to be available in early 2021; availability and program changes will be announced on this webpage in the coming weeks once details are finalized.

Landlords and tenants who are referred by the Justice of the Peace Court through dispute resolution or mediation may continue to submit applications and will need to provide a case number to do so. Submitting a case number does not guarantee an application will be accepted; the referral must be confirmed by the Justice of the Peace Court.

For previous applicants or applicants who have been referred by the Justice of the Peace Court, please see this page for program information.

Applicants who submitted applications before the December 30 deadline and need to make edits requested by DSHA can find the application portal HERE.

Tenants who need rental assistance for January 2021 can visit http://destatehousing.com/covid19/renters for a list of DSHA's nonprofit partners who may be able to assist.
