With a Tuesday deadline approaching, Los Angeles County officials are urging qualified landlords to apply and submit an application for the opportunity to receive rent relief.
Last week, the L.A. County Department of Consumer and Business Affairs launched its second round of rent relief to aid landlords impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Qualified landlords can receive up to $30,000 per unit for past-due rent and eligible expenses from April 1, 2022, to the present.
Technical assistance is available in multiple languages by calling 877- 849-0770 between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.. Additionally, applicants can register for hosted informational webinars at lacountyrentrelief.com.
The last day to apply will be Tuesday at 4:59 p.m.
Launched by the county Board of Supervisors and administered by The Center by Lendistry, the program will distribute over $68 million in financial support to qualified landlords adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Applicants must be located in the county, excluding the city of Los Angeles.
“As we near the application deadline, we urge landlords to not miss this chance for financial aid,'‘ Rafael Carbajal, director of DCBA, said in a prepared statement. “This is your opportunity to secure the support necessary to maintain affordable housing services for tenants throughout Los Angeles County.’’
DCBA has implemented a prioritized review process for the LA County Rent Relief Program applications. Applications submitted will be evaluated, with priority given to those demonstrating the most substantial financial distress, those catering to the most vulnerable tenants, and properties located in areas of highest need, as identified by the LA County Equity Explorer Tool.
“The Rent Relief Program has played a crucial role in supporting landlords and tenants during these challenging times. … As this round concludes, I encourage all eligible landlords to apply and take advantage of the resources available to safeguard their properties and their tenants,'' Tunua Thrash-Ntuk, president and CEO of The Center by Lendistry, said in a prepared statement.
