Help for landlords

Help for Renters

L.A. County has launched two new rent relief programs: the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (for residential tenants) and the Rent Relief program (for landlords of the 2nd district). These programs provide a lifeline to income-eligible renters and mom-and-pop landlords in some unincorporated areas of L.A. County.

Those eligible for this program must be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic – whether it’s through job loss, furloughs or reduction in hours or pay.

If found eligible, the Rental Assistance Program provides rent payments to property owners on behalf of a household, up to $1,000 per month, for three months.

Rent relief for landlords is available for residents of the Second Supervisorial District.

Applications for both programs must be received by May 31, 2020.

For full details on the programs, visit the L.A. County Development Authority’s website.

Project Roomkey

The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) is pleased to announce the release of the 2020 Project Roomkey/COVID-19 Shelters Laundry Services Request for Information. Under this RFI, LAHSA seeks to gather information from laundry services providers interested in participating in the Project Roomkey Interim Housing (PRK-IH) Program and other shelter programs operating in response to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Project Roomkey provides temporary housing (in a hotel/motel setting) for asymptomatic people experiencing homelessness (PEH), who are highly vulnerable/high risk individuals. High-risk individuals are those 65+ or who have certain underlying health conditions (e.g., respiratory compromised immunities, chronic disease). This RFI is a noncompetitive solicitation and is open to laundry services vendors that are licensed to operate in the County of Los Angeles.

The RFI is now available on our website.
