The Covid virus rent fund is now history, thanks to vaccinations and improved job market. From March 2020 through December 2021, IFCH provided $378,500 in rental and utility assistance to 107 island households. Thank you, Vashon Island donors. Also, thanks to Vashon Be Prepared, Granny’s, PSE and others for supporting grants.
IFCH is now processing donations to help islanders facing high rent costs, specifically those paying more the 50% of household income for rent. To make sure your donation intended for the New Vashon Rent Assistance is properly used, please indicate “Rent Program” on PayPal secure payment page. You can also indicate “General” for donations intended for the usual IFCH assistance.
