When a residential property in Bristol has been condemned upon inspection by a governmental agency, such as the Health Department or Building Department, the residents residing lawfully in the property may be eligible for cash assistance. The assistance covers only the cost of the differential between the rent or mortgage that was being paid and the new rent. The new residence must meet building and health codes and pass an inspection. An application for assistance is to be completed at the Community Services office. There is a time limit and a financial cap on the assistance.
