Event Details


In Santa Barbara County, on April 6th the County Board of Supervisors approved Commercial Rental Assistance for Santa Barbara businesses with between six (6) and fifty (50) employees. In preparation to launch, The Santa Barbara Foundation is currently developing the application. FUNDS ARE LIMITED! FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED

BE PREPARED TO APPLY. Sign up for tomorrow’s 1:30 zoom program on Tuesday April 20 at

Carlos Jimenez, the County’s Specialist for this CDBG Capital Programs and Senior Community Development Program Specialist will describe how to qualify for commercial rental assistance.


PLUS: Very significant development in County's Emergency Rental Assistance (ERAP) for residential delinquent rents. Many Owners applied to the State program, because Santa Barbara County has only been providing $6,000 in reimbursement. However, the State is potentially NOT going to provide Santa Barbara County owners with ERAP funds for 4-6 months; actually great news for Santa Barbara property owners because the County’s Department of Housing & Community Development has requested the County Board of Supervisors to increase the County’s limit of $6,000 reimbursement for unpaid rent to 100% REIMBURSEMENT FOR 15 MONTH’S RENT! (the last 12 months delinquent rent and for 3 months in the future.)
Final approval is pending on the County Board of Supervisors’ Consent Agenda for Tuesday April 20. However, apply now! As of today, the County has $9,450,000 ERAP dollars remaining. First come, First served. Get your delinquent tenants to apply immediately to the County ERAP, even if you have already applied to the State.
Learn more from Edward Teyber, Program Specialist for the County's Housing & Development.
