The Marin County Emergency Rental Assistance program provides greatly needed rent relief to Marin County landlords and renters who have faced financial hardships due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Rental Assistance Program is intended to help eligible households cover rental and utilities arrears, prospective payments for rent and utilities, and to provide funding for housing stabilization services. The goal of the program is to prevent evictions and housing instability due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The program is a partnership with our local Community Based Organizations (CBOs), tenants, landlords and housing providers.
