In response to the COVID-19 crisis, Council President Martinez's $103 million program and legislation created the largest COVID-19-related renters assistance program of any city in the nation. Funding comes from the Federal CARES Act ($100M) and from the Council President and several of her colleagues on the City Council who earmarked about $3 million in additional discretionary funds for Renters Relief. These funds will benefit renters, landlords, and property owners who also need assistance to pay their mortgages.  

The $103 million Emergency Renters Relief program will begin accepting applications on Monday, July 13, and continue through Friday, July 17, to help about 50,000 residents and families.

 

We encourage City of LA apartment tenants earning 80% Average Median Income (AMI) or lower, to apply online at hcidla.lacity.org from 8 a.m., Monday, to 11:59 p.m., Friday.

 

For people who do not have online access, they can call (844) 944-1868, from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., beginning Monday and continuing through Friday. All applicants, regardless of when they register, will have the same chance of being selected so please consider registering after Monday.

Programs like this are part of Council President Martinez's Families First agenda and the reason she created the Ad Hoc Committee on COVID-19 Recovery and Neighborhood Investment to ensure we use federal CARES Act dollars to assist our most vulnerable communities during these difficult times and that effort will continue.

 

While this is the largest COVID-19 Renters Relief program in the nation, we still need much more housing assistance from the Federal government.
