San Mateo County will collectively distribute $47 million of emergency rental assistance in 2021 with payments going directly to landlords. These funds are available exclusively to San Mateo County housing providers. Learn more about this rental assistance program, which pays 80% of the back rent that affected tenants owe.  

This CAA webinar will help housing providers in San Mateo County navigate a maze of requirements, receive a tutorial on the application process, and answer critical questions:   

  • Are there programs that will fully pay off rent arrears or do I have to forgive a portion of rent? 
  • Can landlords apply directly? 
  • What are the eligibility requirements? 
  • Can a tenant/landlord participate in multiple rental assistance programs? 
  • Can a tenant on monthly federal assistance like Section 8 apply for emergency rental assistance? 

CAA’s Senior Vice President of Public Affairs, Rhovy Lyn Antonio, will moderate the presentation.
