San Mateo County Emergency Rental Assistance Program
San Mateo County is working with the State of California to provide emergency rental assistance to San Mateo County residents who have experienced a financial hardship due to COVID-19 and have been unable to pay their rent and/or utilities.
The program is for both eligible tenants and landlords, and proof of citizenship is not required.
Please see information below to determine if you are eligible, how to apply, and the amount of rent relief that can be given. Eligible tenants and landlords may apply for assistance with utilities in addition to rent.
