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.


For any additional questions or concerns, including eligibility and application help, please call CA COVID-19 Rent Relief Call Center at 833-430-2122.
