TrueCare™, a nonprofit health care provider for the diverse communities in North County San Diego and South Riverside, on Monday announces a new program for rental assistance. To qualify, applicants must show an inability to pay their rent by documenting a loss of income and lack of assets because of Covid.
The program, in partnership with the County of San Diego, provides renters up to two months’ rent, including a security deposit, for a maximum of $7,000.00. To be eligible, a single renter’s income must be $67,900 a year or less; a couple’s combined income no more than $77,600, and a family of four, no more than $97,000 a year. Rental assistance is available to residents who live within the jurisdiction of the San Diego County Housing Authority, including the unincorporated areas of San Diego and the cities throughout San Diego County.
In addition, rental assistance for small landlords will financially assist landlords who own fewer than five rental units that have unpaid rent for three months or longer.
