NCJW|LA’s West Hollywood Rental Assistance Program (RAP) provides direct cash assistance to keep community members housed. There are two separate tracks for RAP: Standard Rental Assistance and Emergency COVID-19 Rental Assistance. Our Standard RAP is designed to support community members in their recovery from financial emergencies and Emergency COVID-19 RAP helps people dealing with the direct and ongoing financial impact of the pandemic.  Both programs provide rental assistance checks directly to landlords and property managers. Program descriptions, qualifications/eligibility requirements, and documentation requirements are listed below.
