NCJW LA’s COVID-19 Rental Assistance Program provides financial assistance to West Hollywood renters under age 55 who are unable to pay rent due to issues related to COVID-19 (illness, loss of employment, reduction of working hours, caring for a household member with COVID-19, etc.). Renters can apply for assistance to cover 25% of their rent for one month up to $1,000, which will be paid directly to the management company. Renters can apply for a second, third and fourth month of rental assistance 30 days after their previous assistance is approved, pending documented continued financial impact from COVID-19. Additional benefits may be available for those who are low-income and/or living with dependents.

Required documentation includes: 1. Utility bill, 2. Identification, 3. Documentation of COVID-19 impact, 4. Lease and landlord information, 5. Declaration of COVID-19-related financial distress hardship.

Renters should call (323) 852-7036 ex 634 or email Maria J. Vazquez.
