The City of Los Angeles, in partnership with the federal government and the State of California, has created a new emergency rental assistance program to assist low-income renters who have been unable to pay their rent due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The City of Los Angeles’ Housing + Community Investment Department (HCIDLA) announced that the City’s Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) is now accepting new applications through 11:59 PM, Friday, April 30, 2021.
The City’s 2021 ERAP is for LA renters and rental property owners and will be administered by HCIDLA. The program is providing $235,500,000 in federal and state emergency rental assistance funds to support low income households in paying rent arrears for renters impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The program is open to all low income renters living in the City of Los Angeles, regardless of immigration status.
