CA COVID-19 Rent Relief Program
Governor Newsom signed SB 91, establishing the CA COVID-19 Rent Relief program, allocating $2.6 billion in federal rent assistance.
SB 91 extends eviction protections to June 30, 2021.
These efforts will enable low-income households most impacted by the pandemic to stay in their homes and prevent displacement which will be crucial to an equitable recovery.
CA COVID-19 Rent Relief provides financial assistance to income-qualified renters experiencing housing instability. The program provides rent reimbursement to landlords for unpaid rent accrued between April 1, 2020 and March 31, 2021.
Landlords are eligible to receive 80% of unpaid rent, as long as they agree to waive the remaining 20% of unpaid rent.
Eligible renters whose landlords don’t participate in the program can still receive 25% of unpaid rent accrued between April 1, 2020, and March 31, 2021.
Los Angeles, Long Beach, and Santa Clarita will have their own application portals.
