Are you behind on rent or utilities? CA COVID-19 Rent Relief will help income-eligible households pay rent and utilities, both for past due and future payments. The program is currently accepting applications.
It is estimated that as many as 1.5 million California renters are behind on rent and at risk of eviction because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The CA COVID-19 Rent Relief Program will be a lifeline to renters and landlords. It clears accumulated rental debt, keeps the hardest-hit families in their homes, and will lead to a more equitable economic recovery.
To assist renters and landlords with the application process, BCSH has also established a Local Partner Network consisting of community based organizations across the state in the hardest hit areas to provide in-person assistance to individuals who may not know about the program or who may need help filling out their applications. Their goal is to make sure that everyone who needs rent relief gets it.
