This program also offers assistance covering the cost of security deposits and utility deposits.
Once an applicant is approved, rental assistance is provided for one year and may be renewed depending on funding availability.To qualify for the program, applicants must earn less than 60% of Humboldt County’s median income and provide all required documentation included in the application process. Priority will be given to seniors, age 55 and older, who currently reside in Arcata in addition to unhoused families and individuals.
To be added to the program’s waitlist, applicants must submit a pre-application, which will be available at the Community Development Department office, located at 736 F Street in Arcata.
Pre-applications are also available here until Friday, May 31.
Pre-applications received after 5 PM on Friday, May 31 cannot be accepted. The City of Arcata hopes to receive additional funding for the Tenant-Based Rental Assistance Program in the future, and will inform community members when the program waitlist will re-open.
