ANAHEIM, Calif. (Sept. 30, 2020) — Anaheim is again offering assistance to struggling renters, reopening a second round of applications for the city’s Emergency Rental Assistance Program.
Applications are open Sept. 30 through Oct. 14. Renters who have been impacted by the coronavirus crisis can apply online at Anaheim.net/RentAssistance.
In the first round of the program in June, Anaheim received nearly 900 applications.
In August, the City Council allocated additional funds to the program, now totaling $5 million in aid, as part of Anaheim’s Community and Economic Recovery Plan.
The Emergency Rental Assistance Program aims to provide up to six months of rent help to help those who have lost jobs or seen reduced income due to the health and economic impacts of coronavirus.
The assistance, up to $2,100 per household, aims to help renters pay back rent deferred since April under Anaheim’s eviction moratorium, as well as current and future rent for those still facing hardships.
The program draws on funds from the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act as well as city funding allocated under Anaheim Community and Economic Recovery Plan.
