Program Details

The LA County COVID-19 Rent Relief application will open on August 17, 2020, for income-eligible renters in Los Angeles County.

Eligible Renters

LA County COVID-19 Rent Relief is open to renters in Los Angeles County. Eligible renters must qualify based on income and have struggled to pay rent, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Their landlord must provide a W-9 and sign a participation agreement in order to have the rent paid on behalf of the tenant.

Please click here to view the list of targeted zip codes that are prioritized for 50% of the available funding. Renters not listed in targeted zip codes may still apply if they meet the eligibility requirements, with the exception of residents living in the City of Los Angeles, as the City also received its own allocation of CARES Act funds and has its own programs for City Residents.
