Apply for emergency rental assistance

Posted on October 18, 2021 at 8:26 pm by Clay Curtin

San Mateo County, along with the State of California, still offers emergency rental assistance to San Mateo County residents who have experienced a financial hardship due to COVID-19 and have been unable to pay their rent and/or utilities. The program is for both eligible tenants and landlords, and proof of citizenship is not required. Eligible tenants and landlords may apply for assistance with utilities in addition to rent. Qualifying renters and landlords are eligible for 100% of rent and utilities owed.

Renters and landlords impacted by COVID-19 who need help with rent should apply immediately, before funding runs out. To check eligibility requirements, apply or find a Local Partner Network organization who can assist you further, visit or call 833-430-2122, toll free.
