Rent relief continues at a slow pace

With the eviction ban scheduled to end at the end of September, many renters and landlords are still waiting for their share of $500 million in federal aid that has already been allocated to the Bay Area.

To date, California housing officials have received requests for $1.4 billion in relief and paid out $426 million — approximately 30% — since the program began in March.

Large cities and counties established their own programs, and have primarily focused on the poorest renters most likely to become homeless.

Analysts say that application websites are often glitchy and many of the requirements for state and local aid are confusing.
