United Lift, a rental assistance program started this week with the goal of keeping 10,000 families and residents in housing.
The program, a partnership between Riverside County, United Way of the Inland Valleys, and Lift To Rise, will provide $33 million in rental assistance between the months of June and November, according to a statement on the county’s website.
Lift to Rise and United Way of Inland Valleys will administer the program. The first payments will be handed out next month.
“Riverside County, a place already facing significant economic insecurity and rent burden, is now severely impacted by the near-collapse of the region’s tourism and entertainment economy,” said Riverside County Supervisor V. Manuel Perez in the statement. “The ability of our region to come together like this and keep people in their houses reflects the values and spirit that remain so strong here.”
