Los Angeles County re-launches Rent Relief Program with $68 million in grant funding

May 24, 2024 8:13 AM

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (May 23, 2024) – The Los Angeles County Department of Consumer and Business Affairs (DCBA) began accepting applications for a second round of the Los Angeles County Rent Relief Program this week. The deadline to submit applications is Tuesday, June 4, 2024, at 4:59 p.m. PDT. Spearheaded by the LA County Board of Supervisors as an effort to reduce evictions of tenants for non-payment of rent, the program will distribute over $68 million in financial support to qualified landlords adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The program will provide up to $30,000 per rental unit to landlords for unpaid rent and eligible expenses dating from April 1, 2022 to the present. To qualify, units must still be occupied by impacted tenants, and eligibility will be prioritized based on the following factors.

Landlords who do not meet all four factors may apply but will have lower priority.

Note: If an applicant has already submitted a complete application, the County is advising not to submit another application for the same impacted rental unit/tenant. If an applicant has already been awarded a grant under this Program, the existing application will be reviewed for additional rental arrears and if eligible, will be notified by the Program.

Those interested in applying for the LA County Rent Relief Program can review the full eligibility requirements and access the application directly by visiting the program portal at lacountyrentrelief.com. Submission of a completed application is not a guarantee of funding.

Free technical assistance in multiple languages is available daily from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Early submissions are strongly encouraged.
