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.
