COVID-19 Rent Relief for Tenants and Landlords
The California COVID-19 Rent Relief program which is administered by the California Housing and Community Development Department launched in 48 counties (the remaining 10 are administering state funding independently). The program can assist tenants who have unpaid rent with up to a year of relief, does not jeopardize other federal or state benefits, and will initially prioritize individuals with incomes below 50% of area median income. Please share widely with clients and encourage any participants who are behind on rent to apply for the program as soon as possible as funding is limited. Both tenants and landlords can apply.
