Yolo County Rental Assistance/Asistencia de Alquiler del Condado de Yolo

The purpose of the Rental Assistance Program is to support residents who are at greatest risk of displacement due to non-payment of rent related to the COVID-19 pandemic and to offset corresponding lost revenue that landlords need to provide housing services. The program provides a one-time rent relief grant directly to landlords on behalf of low-income tenants to reduce burden on tenants and ensure landlords receive the revenue needed to maintain housing services. Yolo County Housing (YCH) will be administering the program.
