The Los Angeles County Department of Consumer and Business Affairs (DCBA) is now accepting applications for the Los Angeles County Rent Relief Program. The program will distribute over $68 million in financial support to qualified landlords adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Rent Relief Program will provide up to $30,000 per rental unit to landlords for past-due rent and eligible expenses dating from April 1, 2022, to the present. The program aims to curb tenant evictions and ensure the continued provision of housing.
“Our residents have been waiting for this moment and will benefit from the LA County Rent Relief application portal now being open. Thanks to the one-time American Rescue Plan Act funds allocated for COVID-19 recovery, we can assist tenants and small landlords that were most impacted in our communities,” Los Angeles County Supervisor Holly J. Mitchell, said. “I look forward to continuing working with the Department of Consumer Business Affairs in ensuring these funds will fulfill their intended purpose of keeping people housed.”
Any applications submitted will be systematically evaluated, with priority given to those demonstrating the most substantial financial distress, those catering to the most vulnerable tenants, and properties located in areas of highest need. Early submissions are strongly encouraged.
The deadline to submit applications is Friday, January 12, 2024, at 11:59 PM PST. To review eligibility requirements and apply for the LA County Rent Relief Program, visit lacountyrentrelief.com
