Rental Assistance Available; New Phone Line Established to Guide Process

The County of Marin has created a new phone number and email address to guide residents with requests for financial rental assistance during the COVID-19 pandemic. 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 now.

The new phone line was created to provide specialized aid to individuals seeking rental assistance – regardless of citizenship status – and allow the Marin County Public Health’s public information line for the COVID-19 emergency to focus on assisting with questions about coronavirus testing, vaccines, and business guidelines.

Call center staff, coordinated through the Marin County Community Development Agency, is comprised of disaster service workers from the County of Marin and the City of San Rafael. The workers will ask potential applicants a few questions to move toward eligibility for the financial assistance. Applicants will be asked to provide proof of residency and income. Typical documentation includes a photo identification with a Marin County address on it or a utility bill that shows the local address, proof of income (such a pay stub or a bank statement), and a copy of the first page of a rental lease to show proof of residency. Anyone needing help but not possessing the paperwork can work with staff to otherwise provide the necessary information.
