THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES 2021 EMERGENCY RENTAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM OPENS MARCH 30TH
to assist low-income renters who have been economically impacted by COVID-19

LOS ANGELES – The City of Los Angeles’ Housing + Community Investment Department (HCIDLA) announced today that the City’s Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) will be accepting new applications beginning at 8:00 AM, Tuesday, March 30th, and closing at 11:59 PM, Friday, April 30, 2021.
The City of Los Angeles, in partnership with the federal government and the State of California, has created a new emergency rental assistance program to assist low-income renters who have been unable to pay their rent due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The City’s 2021 ERAP is for LA renters and rental property owners and will be administered by HCIDLA. The program is providing $235,500,000 in federal and state emergency rental assistance funds to support low income households in paying rent arrears for renters  impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The program is open to all low income renters living in the City of Los Angeles, regardless of immigration status.
ELIGIBILITY
Households must meet the following program requirements to qualify for renters assistance in this round:
  1. Residents of the City of Los Angeles, regardless of immigration status.
  2. One or more adults within the household have experienced unemployment or a reduction in household income, incurred significant costs, or experienced other financial hardship due directly or indirectly to the COVID-19 pandemic;
  3. The household income is at or below 50% of the area median income (AMI). Priority will be given to households with lower incomes at or below 30% of AMI, followed by those earning less than 50%. Subject to funding availability, applications may be opened later to households earning up to 80% of AMI.

Income qualification for the City’s ERAP: the combined household incomes of all adults (18 and over) must be 50% or less of the Area Median Income, adjusted for household size. These figures are defined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. (Effective April 2020).

APPLYING

Option A: A cooperative approach for tenants and landlords to participate in the COVID-19 Emergency Rent Relief Program together. Program payments will be made to landlords to reimburse 80% of eligible renters’ unpaid rent accrued between April 1, 2020 and March 31, 2021, however, the landlord must agree to waive the remaining 20% of the unpaid rent for that same period of time.

Either landlords or tenants can initiate applications. Assistance amounts will be based on the amount of back rent owed. Program funds will be paid directly to the tenant’s landlord on behalf of the tenant, provided the landlord agrees to the program terms.

Option B: Available to eligible renters after their landlords have declined to participate, payments will be limited to 25% of the unpaid rent that was accrued between April 1, 2020 and March 31, 2021, as well as financial assistance to pay 25% of up to three months’ future rent from April – June 2021.

City of Los Angeles renters, and landlords applying on behalf of their tenants, are encouraged to apply online at the HCIDLA website at: hcidla.lacity.org beginning March 30th through April 30th, 2021.

Applicants with limited online access can call the ERAP Hotline 833-373-0587, from 8 AM to 8 PM, starting Tuesday, March 30th through April 30th. TTY will also be available for persons with hearing or speech impairments. Applications and phone support will also be available in multiple languages.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Applications received between March 30 and April 9 will be selected through a randomized process to determine the order of review for the first group. Applications received from April 10th through April 30 will be selected through a second randomized process. The last day to apply for this round April 30, 2021.

Priority will be given to tenants who earn less than 30% of the area median income and to households who have experienced ninety (90) days or more of unemployment.

Regardless of participation in any rental assistance program, all tenants impacted by COVID-19 are still protected by both city and state emergency renter protections currently in effect.

The ERAP is for City of L.A. residents only. Tenants who live in the greater LA County area (87 cities), but do not live in the City of L.A., can apply for rental assistance with the State of California at: housingiskey.com, or through their own City program if available.

Thinking of running in Elysian Valley Riverside Neighborhood Council?

You can contact the Elysian Valley Riverside Neighborhood Council Outreach committee team at Attn:Co-chair Alejandro Palomino  alejandro.evrnc@gmail.com or you can use the following links below to guide you.

Who’s on a Neighborhood Council?

While Neighborhood Council board members are volunteers, they are public officials elected by the members of their community. Most board members serve two-year terms; a few Neighborhood Councils have four-year terms. 

Who can run or vote?

Unlike other city, state, or federal elections, voting and being a candidate in Neighborhood Council (NC) elections is open to more than just the residents of a community. Participation is open to those who live, work, or own property or a business within an NC’s boundaries, as well as to “community interest stakeholders,” such as church members, local students (or parents of students), or members of local service organizations.

Candidates need not be US citizens or legal residents to qualify. Participation is also open to the formerly incarcerated. The minimum age to vote is 16; the minimum age to run for most NC seats is 18, except for Youth Seat candidates, who may be between the ages of 14-17.

Evictions protections remain in place for City of Los Angeles residential tenants, now & for the foreseeable future
Residential renters in the City of LA: you cannot be evicted right now, if you can’t pay your rent due to illness, loss of work, or other COVID-related circumstances. As of September 1, that will not change.
However, if someone tries to tell you or someone you know otherwise, or tries to give you an eviction notice, please don’t just ignore it. Instead, make sure you get the protections you deserve by doing these two things:
  1. File a report with the City of LA’s Housing Department on their website at http://HCIDLA.LAcity.org, or by calling their hotline at 1-866-557-7368
  2. Get legal help – help is available at no cost through the lawyers participating in the City’s LA Represents program. Learn more and get help at https://corona-virus.la/LARepresents
More details and resources can be found on this Housing Department one pager on COVID and evictions notices. Please download it, and share it with your loved ones, neighbors, and stakeholders.
Still have questions? Please call the Housing Department at 1-866-557-7368, or visit their website at http://HCIDLA.LAcity.org.
WHY DO SO MANY PEOPLE THINK EVICTIONS PROTECTIONS END SEPTEMBER 1?
You may have heard that the Judicial Council of California recently voted to end their emergency moratorium on evictions in this state on September 1. They did, but that has no impact on the City of Los Angeles’ evictions protections for residential renters, which remain in place.
The Judicial Council is the policy-setting body for the judicial branch of the state government, and that moratorium was a temporary one. Case processing was put on hold, to allow state lawmakers time to develop a longer-term solution for all Californians, which is in currently the works.
All completed Neighborhood Purpose Grants or funding requests must be sent in by June 27, 2020, and no later than 5 pm. There will be a Special General Board Meeting on June 29, 2020, at 6:30 pm. All agenda submissions and funding requests can be sent to Frank Mendoza (president) frankm.evrnc@gmail.com The agenda will be posted up before 6:30 pm on June 28, 2020, at the following 5 locations below:

Households must meet all three of the following criteria to be eligible for assistance through the Angeleno Card initiative:

Households may be eligible regardless of whether workers within them earn or earned W2 or 1099 income; are or were otherwise independently employed (as domestic workers, day laborers, or street vendors, for example);or are or were seasonal workers in agriculture or tourism who are not working or who have experienced a serious reduction in work hours.
