Are you at risk of losing your home due to the COVID-19 pandemic? Unincorporated Alameda County residents may be eligible for financial assistance to pay rent.
Centro Legal de la Raza is administering an emergency rental assistance program to disburse $5 million in federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”) funds. Funds will be used to provide rental assistance to low-income tenants in unincorporated Alameda County who have lost work or income due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The application period opens on November 17, 2020 and will remain open until funds are exhausted or December 28, 2020, whichever comes sooner. Approved households can receive past due rent of up to 9 months or up to $18,000, whichever is less.
