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
We are collaborating with the County of Marin that now has an online application for both landlords and renters at http://www.marincounty.org/rentalassistance. If you have any difficulty with the application, please contact them at the County Call Center – call (415) 473-2223 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
You will need the following documents when you apply:
- 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 do not have this documentation, St. Vincent’s will work with you to help you validate your financial situation in other ways.
If you need assistance that does NOT include rental assistance, please contact us at 415-454-0366.
