Emergency Rental Assistance Program
Since 2018, Keep Oakland Housed has prevented homelessness and displacement for 7,000+ households, spending an average of only $5,227 on financial assistance per household.
(As of March 31, 2022, the City of Oakland's Emergency Rental Assistance Program responding to COVID-19 is oversubscribed and no longer accepting applications.)
If you have already submitted an application online, you may be contacted based on priority need. Please continue to check our website for other supports that will be offered in the future.
Know Your Rights
The City of Oakland’s Eviction Moratorium, which has protected tenants from eviction due to non-payment, is still in place but could be coming to an end soon. It is unlikely that all Oakland residents with unpaid rent will receive back rent support. Please continue to pay your rent as you are able. Know your rights and seek legal help as needed. This site will be updated as information becomes available.*
