Centro La Familia Housing Retention Program

If you live in the County or City of Fresno and your ability to pay your rent/mortgage was affected as a result of COVID-19 (loss of job, income, layoff, business closure, etc.), we can help!

Through the Housing Retention Program, income eligible individuals can apply for financial assistance to cover back rent or mortgage payments:

City of Fresno residents can receive up to $4,500 for a multiperson household, or $3,000 for a single person household. The funds can be used to cover rent/mortgage, as well as other housing related costs (excluding city utilities)

County of Fresno residents can apply for assistance of up to $1,500 for a single person household and $3,000 for a multi-person household. These funds can be used exclusively for back rent/mortgage.
