CITY OF LA MIRADA OFFERS MORTGAGE AND RENTAL ASSISTANCE TO RESIDENTS

STAFF REPORT

The La Mirada City Council approved a Mortgage/Rental Assistance Grant Program at its City Council meeting held Tuesday, May 12.  

The program is funded by the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.  

The CARES Act provided the City of La Mirada with $157,648, which the City will distribute to eligible residents who were financially impacted by COVID-19.  Applicants do not have to be diagnosed with COVID-19 to be eligible.

The City’s Mortgage/Rental Assistance Grant Program will assist low to moderate income residents of La Mirada with up to two months of mortgage/rental payments.  

The total amount may not exceed $4,000.  

Applicants must show they are unable to make their housing payment due to the impacts of COVID-19 and meet income qualifications based on household size.  

This assistance will be a grant and will not need to be paid back to the City.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has caused financial losses for many families,” says Economic Development Manager Alison Moore.  “The Mortgage/Rental Assistance Grant Program aims to provide financial relief to residents in need during these challenging times.”

The funding available through this program is limited and will be distributed to qualified applicants on a first-come, first-served basis.

Information regarding the Mortgage/Rental Assistance Grant Program is available on the City’s website at www.cityoflamirada.org.  

Information includes the application, income qualification guidelines and a list of required documentation.

Program information is also available by calling La Mirada City Hall at (562) 943-0131.
