  • Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) is currently available. This is an emergency unemployment assistance program under the federal CARES Act. Self-Employed/Independent Contractors who don’t have employees can apply for assistance through this program.
  • Recently, the LA City Council put into place renter protections that prohibit landlords from evicting tenants who are unable to pay their rent due to the COVID-19 health emergency.   If a tenant is unable to pay rent due to financial impacts related to COVID-19, the landlord must be notified before rent is due or within 7 days after the rent due date. To assist Angelenos, the City’s Housing + Community Investment Department  has developed a form for tenants to use to inform their landlords of any payment delay. For more information on renters’ protections during the local emergency, contact HCIDLA at (866) 557‐RENT or visit
