Emergency Rental Assistance

The Emergency Rental Assistance program makes funds available to assist households that are unable to pay rent and utilities due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  The funds are provided directly to States, U.S. Territories, local governments, and Indian tribes.  We are using the funds to aid eligible enrolled Wiyot households who have been impacted financially by the pandemic and are struggling to pay rent and utilities. Eligibility is based on current income and family size. This program can also be used for short-term hotel stay to assist households in-between more permanent accommodations.

This program will end either September 30, 2025, or when funds are exhausted; whichever comes first.

To apply, complete and return the application with other required documentation to Peggy at Health & Human Services Department, 1000 Wiyot Drive, Loleta, CA 95551, or call her for more information at 707-733-5055.
