With the expiration of a federal eviction moratorium approaching on Dec. 31 and a one-month extension expected from Congress, the Virgin Islands Housing Authority is taking to the radio on Wednesday to promote a program that will help its residents who are behind on their rent remain in their apartments.

Last March, seeing the novel coronavirus pandemic take its toll on workers’ incomes, the V.I. Housing Authority launched the “Helping Hands” program to give residents options for dealing with unpaid rent and mounting debt.

“We can work with you to set up a repayment plan within your means,” said Director of Asset Management Jimmy Farmer, whose staff created Helping Hands. “Even if you owe $1,000 or more, a reasonable amount repaid each month in addition to your regular month’s rent can keep you in good standing.”
