New Allotment of Rental Assistance Heads to Marin

More federal stimulus money is being provided to Marin renters who have experienced economic hardship because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The County is receiving an estimated $7.75 million by early February as part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, passed by Congress in late December. The funding is earmarked for current and past rent, current and past utilities and home energy costs, and other housing expenses tied to the viral outbreak.

The $7.75 million is on top of nearly $6 million in local funding already allocated through Marin’s safety-net rental assistance program started in March 2020.

Anyone who is homeless, qualified for unemployment benefits, experienced a reduction in income, incurred significant COVID-related costs, or endured other financial hardship due to the coronavirus is eligible to apply for the new funding. Priority is given to households that are considered extremely low income, which in Marin would be a family of three with an income of no more than $43,550. Anyone needing help paying rent may call (415) 473-2223 or email staff to learn more about the Emergency Rental Assistance Program, which is open for applications.

Supervisors Pass New Eviction Moratorium

After implementing eviction protections for residents during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Board of Supervisors unanimously passed a resolution January 12 that continues to bar evictions through June for people economically impacted by the coronavirus.

Planners from the Marin County Community Development Agency worked with the Board’s Housing Subcommittee to create language that reinstates a local moratorium first enacted March 24, 2020, when households began to suffer negative financial impacts directly tied to the pandemic. The moratorium was extended four times.

Landlords are now prohibited from evicting a tenant through June 30 if the tenant has an economic hardship that is directly tied to COVID-19.

View the news release to learn more. More documents and information for renters and landlords related to the eviction moratorium can be found on the County’s Renter and Landlord Resources webpage.
