    The applicant’s rent payments must cost more than 30% of the household’s income. You also need to have a household income that is 80% or less than the area’s median income.

    Applicants must have also been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 to be eligible. That includes people who lost wages or had difficulty accessing services during the pandemic, among other things.

    The county requires that anyone who applies submits an online pre-screening to determine if they are eligible for the rental assistance.
