Have you been impacted by COVID-19?

If COVID-19 has impacted your ability to pay or receive rent and utility payments, the State of California is here to help you. Income-eligible renters and their landlords may receive 100% financial assistance through the CA COVID-19 Rent Relief program.

Both renters and landlords are encouraged to apply.

Get help with 100% of your unpaid rent and utilities dating back to April 1, 2020, as well as future rent payments. Utility assistance will be paid directly to the utility provider.

Assistance from the CA COVID-19 Rent Relief program does not count as earned income for renters and will not affect eligibility for other state benefit assistance programs. You won’t be asked about citizenship and your information will be kept private.

How do I apply?

To check eligibility and apply, visit HousingIsKey.com or call 833-430-2122. 

For assistance in another language, or to get help with eligibility requirements or filling out an application, schedule an appointment with a local organization near you by calling 833-687-0967.

Apply before eviction protections expire Sept 30

The CA COVID-19 Rent Relief program is an official State of California sponsored program.
