Eligible Renters

LA County COVID-19 Rent Relief is open to renters in Los Angeles County. Eligible renters must qualify based on income and have struggled to pay rent, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Their landlord must provide a W-9 and sign a participation agreement in order to have the rent paid on behalf of the tenant.

Renters not listed in targeted zip codes may still apply if they meet the eligibility requirements, with the exception of residents living in the City of Los Angeles, as the City also received its own allocation of CARES Act funds and has its own programs for City Residents.
