ABOUT THE ASSEMBLY BILL (AB) 486 LANDLORD RENTAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
The submission of the landlord rental assistance program form starts the process to determine if a landlord may be eligible for rental assistance under certain conditions. If a tenant has not or in some cases has simply refused to apply for rental assistance or is not eligible for rental assistance, then the landlord may be eligible for rental assistance under AB 486 based on certain requirements being met. The submission of the landlord rental assistance program form does not guarantee that the landlord will receive rental assistance. If the landlord meets the basic eligibility requirements under AB 486, the information provided in the landlord rental assistance program form will be sent to the social services agency for review.
