On behalf of everyone at St. Vincent de Paul Society of Marin, please know that our thoughts are with everyone who has been deeply affected by this challenging time.
SVdP is responding in many ways to the crisis. This page explains the Emergency Rental Assistance Program. If you are in need of other support, such as food or other assistance, please visit the Need Help Page.
Covid-19 Emergency Rental Assistance
The County of Marin has re-opened their Call Center – call (415) 473-2223 for people who need help paying their rent between September 2020 and January 2021. This applies even if St. Vincent de Paul has helped you before – you still need to call the County Call Center directly.
SVdP is one of the agencies that has been selected to help with the Emergency Rental Assistance program that has been funded by the County of Marin and the Marin Community Foundation. The information below explains how you can apply for assistance if you are someone in need.
Step 1: Call 415-473-2223 to be added to the waitlist. If your call is not answered, please leave a message with your name and callback number so a member of our staff can contact you.
Step 2: A staff member will reach out to you to ask some intake questions.
Step 3: Once the intake is complete, you will need to send the following documents before we can move forward with assistance:
- Copy of photo ID with a Marin County address (if your ID doesn’t have a Marin County address, you will need to send a copy of a photo ID with a utility bill/other bill that shows your Marin County address)
- Proof of income (pay stub, bank statement)*
- Copy of the first page of your rental lease, or other proof of residency*
* Note if you can’t get some of this documentation, we are willing to work with you to validate your financial situation in other ways.
