Dear Friends,

The state has launched the California Mortgage Relief Program to provide assistance to qualified homeowners who have fallen behind on their housing payments. With $1 billion in federal funds, the program will help homeowners who had a financial hardship during the COVID-19 pandemic.


California Mortgage Relief Program Key Points:

  • Homeowners who missed at least two mortgage payments before Dec. 27, 2021, may be eligible for funds to get caught up.
  • There is a maximum benefit of $80,000 available to each qualifying household.
  • The one-time grant provided through this program is not a loan and does not need to be paid back.
  • The California Mortgage Relief Program is separate from the CA COVID-19 Rent Relief program (which is still open to renters and landlords).
  • Homeowners can check their eligibility and apply through an online portal at
  • Visit the California Mortgage Relief Program website for additional information regarding eligibility requirements, application assistance and other pertinent topics.

Also—if you have not yet heard—your household can receive up to four free at-home COVID-19 tests delivered to your home.  This is an important effort by the Biden Administration to increase testing and slow the spread of COVID-19 across our local communities.  The tests can be requested at  It is expected that orders will ship in 7-12 days. 

Thank you and stay well!
