LA Renter's Relief Opens Monday
A relief program to help Los Angeles residential tenants and landlords struggling with the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic will begin taking applications on Monday, officials announced Wednesday.
The application process for the Emergency Renters Relief Program will be open for five days, starting at 8 a.m. on July 13, and closing at 11:59 p.m. on July 17, said Ann Sewill, general manager of the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department, which is charged with administering the program.
The program allocates $103 million to provide a rent subsidy for low-income tenants in the City of Los Angeles who are unable to pay rent due to circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic. HCIDLA officials are calling it the largest coronavirus-related emergency rental assistance program in the nation.
