COVID-19 Rental and Mortgage Assistance
The Rental and Mortgage Assistance Program is now officially closed as of November 12, 2020 and no longer accepting applications.
The City of Stockton funds the COVID 19 Rental/Mortgage Assistance Program. The program is intended to provide housing stability and prevent families and individuals from losing their homes due to the economic hardship caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The program’s goal is to assist those facing monetary hardships due to a reduction in their income due to job loss, business income loss, or reduced work hours, thus placing their housing in jeopardy.
Eligible households may receive assistance if there is a demonstrated or imminent need and if program funding is available. An example of imminent need is with the elimination of the additional unemployment benefit of $600 per week, it is expected that households may no longer be able to make their rent or mortgage payment. Assistance will be provided for a maximum of three (3) months with a maximum grant assistance of $3,600 for renters and $4,800 for homeowners per household
