County of Orange Offers Emergency Rental Assistance Program

The County of Orange has launched an Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) program to assist renter households who have been unable to pay rent and utilities due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This program allocates up to $10,000 to qualifying households. This program is open County-wide, with the exception of Santa Ana, Anaheim, and Irvine residents as these cities received direct allocations from the US Department of the Treasury. The first open application period is February 1 – February 28, 2021. More information on the program is available through the County’s Press Release or at
