Whether it’s a health-related event or a significant financial hardship, COVID-19 has affected us all. Our state is committed to keeping families housed and recognizes that California renters and landlords have enough to worry about. They want to make sure that rent and utilities aren’t on that list of worries.
The CA COVID-19 Rent Relief program helps income-eligible households with rent and utilities, both for past due and future payments. The federal Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 provides tenant (renter) protection laws and funding to support this program and was signed by Governor Newsom in January 2021.
Depending on the address of your rental property, you may be eligible for a local program. Click here to learn more about this program or apply for relief.
