Assistance for Renters & Landlords
LA County this week launched a new Emergency Rental Assistance Program. This $3.7 million program will serve as a lifeline to income-eligible renters and mom-and-pop landlords in unincorporated areas of LA County.
Those eligible for this program must be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic - whether through job loss, furloughs or a reduction in hours or pay.
If eligible for assistance through this program, recipients will receive up to $1,000 per month, for three months, to: 1) Pay rent, 2) Meet mortgage obligations on rental properties, and/or 3) Reduce rental payment delinquency.
Applications must be received by May 31, 2020. To apply, visit 211la.org/covid-rental-help or dial 2-1-1.
Disaster Relief Assistance for ImmigrantsAs of Monday, May 18, 2020, California is providing state-funded disaster relief assistance to undocumented adults who are ineligible for other forms of assistance because of their immigration status. An undocumented adult who qualifies can receive $500 in direct assistance, with a maximum of $1000 in assistance per household.
To be eligible for disaster relief assistance, an individual must be able to provide the following information:
- That you are an undocumented adult (person over the age of 18);
- are not eligible for federal COVID-19 related assistance, like CARES Act tax stimulus payments or pandemic unemployment benefits; and
- have experienced a hardship as a result of COVID-19.
Funds are on a first come first serve basis until they run out.
