CA now issuing rent and utility checks

May 27, 2021
Last week, Governor Newsom released his budget revision announcing his plan to raise rent relief from 80% to 100% of unpaid rent, for eligible California renters and landlords behind due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

We’re still waiting on some details, but...THIS IS HUGE. If approved by the legislature, It means we effectively cancelled rent for low income California renters!

Spread the word: If you *or anyone you know* is behind on rent or utilities for any amount of time since the beginning of the pandemic, or unable to pay rent in the coming months- apply for rent relief TODAY!!!  

If you’ve faced financial hardship due to COVID and your income has been below 80% of the Area Median Income during the pandemic, you are likely eligible! 

We know that money is starting to be distributed, but slowly, and we also know that if you already applied for the 80% of relief  you can still get the remaining funds once the budget is passed.  Either way, the sooner you apply, the sooner you’ll be able to receive the funding. 
Now we must ensure that everyone that needs the relief gets it. Make sure that you, your friends, and family who have rent debt from the pandemic APPLY TODAY!
