      Californian Rent Relief Program

      https://housing.ca.gov/covid_rr/program_overview.html

      The Rent Relief program urges income-eligible renters and landlords to apply for up to 100 percent of utilities and back and future rent not covered because of COVID-19 impacts on income or ability to pay. Anyone in need of rent and utility support can visit HousingIsKey.com to quickly determine income eligibility and apply. More than 286,000 households across the state have already applied for rent relief and the program has paid out $320 million. Applying early is critical to avoid possible eviction because of nonpayment. California’s eviction moratorium is set to end September 30, 2021.

       

      The California COVID-19 Rent Relief program (HousingIsKey.com) joins Covered California, the Department of Managed Health Care, the Employment Development Department, the Department of Social Services, the Department of Healthcare Services, and other state and local partners to proactively promote resources available to all income-eligible Californians who lost income or ability to pay for necessities during the pandemic.
