The Rent Relief Program will provide up to $30,000 per rental unit to landlords for past due rent and eligible expenses dating from April 1, 2022 to the present. The Program aims to curb tenant evictions and ensure the continued provision of housing.  

DCBA has implemented a prioritized review process for the LA County Rent Relief Program applications. Applications submitted will be systematically 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.

Early submissions are strongly encouraged.
