Solorio Announces Availability of $10 Million in Rent Relief for Residents Impacted by COVID-19

Santa Ana, CA - City Council Member Jose Solorio announces the availability of $10 million in rental assistance program to direct financial support to Santa Ana residents struggling to pay rent due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Using his experience as a former State Assemblymember, Solorio advocated and helped secure $28 million in federal funds to go directly to the city of Santa Ana instead of allowing the money to go to the county. As a result, Santa Ana is able to grow its rental assistance program to ensure no one loses their home because of the pandemic.



Earlier this year, Santa Ana approved a COVID-19 Response Funding Plan that included additional money to support low-income Santa Ana residents. Those who qualify can apply to receive an additional $1,500 for their rent. The additional $10 million will help replenish the program and ensure struggling residents are supported.

“Rebuilding after the pandemic will be a challenge and the City wants to help to those who need it most,” Council Member Solorio said. “This additional funding will help keep people from losing their homes. I will continue to fight to ensure Santa Ana is getting the support it needs so everyone in our community can recover and rebuild.”

Residents can register at Bit.Ly/SAcares2020 to apply here for emergency rental assistance.

Council Member Solorio initiated a similar program in 2019 called “Safely Home in Santa Ana,” which helped Santa Ana residents facing the threat of eviction and homelessness due to a personal financial crisis. The program similarly provided one-time rental assistance to residents and aimed to help keep families from falling into homelessness.
