If you’re a resident in Placer County and have fallen a little behind on your rent or utility bill, there’s help on the way.
Placer County is currently reviewing applications for emergency rental assistance. Anyone who thinks they’re eligible can apply by visiting RentHelpPlacer.com.
If you meet the income eligibility and are unable to fully make rent and utilities due to the pandemic, you can begin resolving your financial hardship with the county today.
Some households may also be eligible for retro assistance for unpaid rent and bills dating back to last year.
