Housing Help

  • COVID-19 Rent Relief Program

    • The CA COVID-19 Rent Relief program covers 100% of unpaid rent and utilities for eligible renters and their landlords who have been impacted by the pandemic. As of October 1, 2021, eligible renters who receive an eviction notice have 15 business days to apply for the CA COVID-19 Rent Relief program and notify their landlord that they have applied (or intend to). Applying for assistance may reduce their risk of eviction. Landlords can’t legally evict renters for non-payment of COVID-related debt without also applying for the program.

    • Interested landlords and renters can check eligibility and apply at HousingIsKey.com or by calling 833-430-2122. Assistance from the CA COVID-19 Rent Relief program does NOT count as earned income for renters and will NOT affect eligibility for any other California state benefit assistance programs, such as CalFresh and CalWORKS. Applying to the program will not impact your residency status or your path to citizenship.​
