We are excited to announce that the City of Monterey is partnering with United Way Monterey County to provide rental assistance to residents of the City of Monterey. In collaboration with the County of Monterey, United Way Monterey County is providing financial assistance to eligible tenants who are experiencing unemployment and loss of income due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
You can apply for this program through United Way by calling 2-1-1 or apply online at MCRentHelp.com.
You will need to apply for this program even if you have participated in other rental assistance programs. Once you apply, you will be referred to an agency that assists applicants in the City you reside in. These agencies will work with you directly to collect the required documentation and pay your landlords directly. Please note that if you live outside of the City of Monterey you will be referred to another agency.
With this new program, applicants are eligible for up to 12 months of rent and utility assistance. This 12 month period can cover a combination of back rent (through March 2021) and a maximum of 3 months of future rent. The program will pay up to 80% of back due rent and 25% of future rent. Please note this program is first come, first serve so our staff recommends contacting United Way and applying as soon as possible.
We have multiple staff assisting with this program, so please email email@example.com
or call (831) 646-3995 with questions.
