The program is made possible with funds from the Homeless Emergency Aid Program (HEAP) provided by the State of California and County of San Bernardino. Payments are made directly to landlords. Applications for assistance are processed on a first come, first served basis. Applications will be processed until all funding is exhausted. Applications will not be processed without required documentation. Submission of application does not guarantee assistance. 

Required Documents:
