California Covid-19 Rent Relief

The California COVID-19 Rent Relief program is working to keep families housed by helping income-eligible households with rent and utilities, for both past due and future payments. Both renters and landlords can apply to receive help from this program.

  • Free financial assistance is available to landlords and renters who need help with unpaid or future rent or utilities.

  • Landlords and renters are both encouraged to apply.

  • Income-eligible applicants may qualify regardless of immigration status and will not be required to show proof of citizenship.

  • 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 state benefit assistance programs, such as CalFresh or CalWORKS.

  • All applicant information is kept private and will not be shared.

  • Applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis. Priority assistance will be given to income eligible households most at-risk of eviction.

  • Once an application has been successfully processed, both the landlord and renter will be notified of next steps.
