United Lift Rental Assistance
The application window for the United Lift Rental Assistance Program reopens on the 15th of every month through November 2020. The application window is open for 10 days and will close on the 25th of each month. Rental assistance is intended to cover past due rent from March to November 2020 up to $3,500 per household.
This program is believed to be the largest per capita dedication of CARES Act funding for direct rental assistance providing $33 million with the goal of keeping 10,000 Riverside County residents housed between the months of June to November. Rental assistance payments totaling $3.7 million are already in the works for 2,467 eligible Riverside County households.
To be eligible for this program is limited to residents of Riverside County with a current lease agreement who are either individuals or families earning 80% or below the area's median income, or who can document a loss of income due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Households that meet these requirements will be chosen at random and must provide documentation proving their economic hardship. Payments will be made directly to landlords. Any households who are not chosen may reapply during the next application window.
To apply, go to www.UnitedLift.org or dial 2-1-1. The application window is available in English and Spanish, and will be open during a 10 day window every month.
