Rent Relief is Here!

Are you a tenant or landlord in California? Need help with unpaid rent or utilities?  

The California Rent Relief Program will support 100% of outstanding rent and utilities owed by qualifying California renters and landlords. Sign up to receive assistance for your back-owed rent and utility bills from September 2020 -June 2021, as well as future rent payments for July -September 2021. Unfortunately, service is available based on the residential address and is NOT currently available to all Los Angeles County residents! 

Find out if your home qualifies by visiting Housing is Key for more information! Don't delay. The California eviction moratorium will come to an end on September 30th, 2021. Spread the word to Keep Angelenos Housed!
