The City of Claremont recently approved a Homelessness Prevention No-Fault Eviction Rental Relocation Assistance program to provide rental relocation assistance for any tenants facing no-fault evictions in advance of AB 1482 taking effect who are either homeless or would be homeless if not for the assistance.

The temporary “Homelessness Prevention No-Fault Eviction Rental Relocation Assistance” program will be available to any tenants living in Claremont who have experienced a no-fault eviction between November 1, 2019 and December 1, 2019 who are either homeless or would be homeless if not for the assistance.

Qualifications and Limitations

Application for No-Fault Eviction Rental Assistance

Tenants eligible to receive funds from the temporary “Homelessness Prevention No-Fault Eviction Rental Relocation Assistance” program must follow these parameters:

  1. The person must live in an apartment building in Claremont (it cannot be a single family home rental).
  2. Tenants eligible to receive funds from the temporary “Homelessness Prevention No-Fault Eviction Rental Relocation Assistance” program must: 

    (1) reside in the City of Claremont;
    (2) have received a no-fault eviction notice from their landlord between the dates of November 1, 2019 and December 1, 2019; 
    (3) be homeless or would be homeless if not for this assistance. 

  3.  When submitting an application for rental relocation assistance, the tenant will need to provide written documentation of their no-fault eviction. They will also be required to provide documentation that establishes their household income and number of people in the family living in the rental unit.  Assistance will only be granted to those that do not exceed the Fiscal Year 2019 Low-Income Limits as set by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), for the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Glendale, CA HUD Metro FMR Area.   
  4. The rental relocation assistance provided to tenants will consist of first and last month’s rent (two rental payments) for another comparable rental unit within the City of Claremont. This rental payment will be made directly to the landlord of the new rental unit, upon the execution of a rental agreement between the tenant and new landlord. The new rental unit identified by the tenant must be a comparable unit in terms of number of bedrooms, or the tenant may choose to downsize the number of bedrooms to ensure affordability.  The new rental unit cannot have rents that exceed the Fiscal Year 2019 Fair Market Rent for the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Glendale, CA HUD Metro Area FMRs for All Bedroom Sizes, which can be found in the following chart.
  5. Application forms are also available at the City Hall public counter, Alexander Hughes Community Center, and the Joslyn Senior Center. 

 

Application forms are available at the City Hall public counter, Alexander Hughes Community Center, Blaisdell Center, and the Joslyn Senior Center. Before submitting an application for rental relocation assistance, it is recommended that you speak with City staff, as this program has very specific, time-restricted parameters.  If you are found to not be eligible for this type of assistance, there could be other avenues of assistance that the City can direct someone to.
