The Salvation Army, in partnership with the City of Lodi’s CDBG-CV program, will help eligible households in the city of Lodi who have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The program provides payment assistance for renters who need help and are income-eligible. This program has limited funding and will be on a first come first serve basis. This is not an entitlement program and all applications will be reviewed for eligibility. For more information and an application, contact the front office at (209) 369-5896 Ext 1107.
Also, a new $29.3 million Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) will be available to San Joaquin County residents beginning March 15, 2021. The ERAP will help qualified tenants address unpaid rent, utilities, and prevent eviction, and assist landlords with their financial obligations. The application will be available through an online portal, where the applicant will create an account and submit an electronic application. Those living in cities within San Joaquin County or unincorporated County areas may apply at www.sjgov.org/covid19/grants. County residents may call 2-1-1 or email ERAPQuestions@sjgov.org if they need assistance applying or have questions.
