This program is provided to prevent evictions arising after the June 30, 2022 sun-setting of certain residential tenant protections under the City’s COVID Eviction Moratorium. The program is not intended to provide general rent assistance. In most cases, eligibility to receive assistance under the program will be conditioned on proof of an actual eviction being undertaken or imminent (not just being behind on rent). Should a legal requirement or court decision prevent residential evictions generally from proceeding, the program will be temporarily suspended and no rent assistance will be provided during such period. Please review program policies and procedures for details on eligibility and requirements.
