City and County of San Diego to Provide Limited Rental Assistance
The City of San Diego, via the San Diego Housing Commission, is administering The Housing Instability Prevention Program (HIPP) which helps pay rent and other housing-related expenses for families in the City of San Diego with low income and unstable housing situations, such as facing eviction for nonpayment of rent. Funding is limited. With current funding, the program can assist approximately 300 households. The program can pay up to $500 per month for up to 24 months for qualifying households in the City of San Diego and assist with housing-related expenses such as security deposits, past-due rent, utilities, application fees or furniture, depending on the family’s need. Payments are made directly to the approved vendor, such as the landlord or utility company. More info.
