New City of Los Angeles Emergency Renters Assistance Program Opens
Silver Lake residents can now apply for L.A.’s new $235.5 million Emergency Rent
Subsidy Program, which is designed to eliminate COVID-19 related rental debt for Los
Angeles’ most vulnerable households. The new subsidy program expands CD 13
Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell’s efforts to create an emergency renters subsidy program
citywide and a CD 13 specific program. The program will subsidize 80% of a qualified
tenant's rental debt accrued between April 1, 2020 and March 31, 2021 if landlord
commits to waiving the remaining 20% owed.
Interested residents can apply online until 11:59 p.m., Friday, April 30. However, an initial
pool of applicants will be randomly selected on April 9. Qualifying applicants not accepted
will be re-entered into the final random selection.
