Need help with unpaid rent or utilities?
The CA COVID-19 Rent Relief program helps income-eligible households with rent and utilities, both for past due and future payments. The federal Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 provides tenant (renter) protection laws and funding to support this program and was signed by Governor Newsom in January 2021.
Eligible renters may also receive assistance for past due utility payments. Past due utilities accumulated from April 1, 2020, will be compensated in full up to a total of 12 months.How to apply for rent & utility relief
