SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – Renters in the city of San Diego will have one final day to apply for emergency financial assistance.

The deadline to apply for the city’s one-time program, which provides up to $4,000 per household, is Friday, Aug. 7.

Families with past due or upcoming rent payments are eligible, and payments for those who are selected are expected to be distributed in the next few weeks.

Each household has to provide documentation to prove they are not currently receiving any rental subsidies. They must also prove their income was impacted by the pandemic.

The payment will be sent directly to the household’s landlord, according to the San Diego Housing Commission.
