The Virginia Rent Relief Program

As noted in previous communication, the Virginia Rent Relief Program (RRP) will be transitioning to a combined landlord and tenant portal for rent relief applications on Dec. 1, 2021. The new portal, Gov2Go, will offer an updated, secure and user-friendly portal that will allow you to access RRP on virtually any web-enabled device.

Landlords and tenants now have the ability to apply for rent relief – and confirm their eligibility – quickly and easily. The new platform will improve communications for both landlords and tenants on applications initiated by each party, as well as streamline and expedite the processing of rent relief applications.

Please note, in order to protect your privacy, all landlords will need to securely upload their W-9 and banking information into the new application platform, Gov2Go. If you have any issues uploading your W-9, please contact the RRP Support Center at 1-833-RENT-RELIEF and/or 833-736-8735.

To access and create an account through Gov2Go, click here.
