YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS THIS WEBINAR: IMPORTANT WEBINAR ON STATE RENTAL RELIEF FUNDING AND THE STATUS OF THE STATE’S “HOUSING IS KEY” RENTAL RELIEF PROGRAM. LEARN WHAT YOU MAY BE DOING WRONG AND WHY YOU HAVE NOT GOTTEN PAID.
Up to $5.4 billion in Federal Government COVID-19 rental relief funding is being made available to pay landlords of certain low-income renters due to non-payment resulting from COVID-19 financial hardships. The State of California has requested from the Federal Government another $1.9 billion of additional funding. However, only approximately $2.0 billion has been paid out to landlords. Where’s the rest of the money? When can landlords expect their applications to be processed and ultimately paid?
Hear from officials from the California Housing and Community Development Agency who will be providing us with important updates on the state’s “Housing is Key” rental assistance program and learn what you need to do in order to get your application for relief paid and processed.
