A home is more than four walls, floors, and a roof. Home is a place to grow, raise a family, find peace of mind. Everyone, no matter their financial situation, deserves a clean, safe, beautiful place to live.

The City of Stockton COVID 19 Homeless Prevention Rental Assistance/Mortgage Program aims to foster housing stability and prevent future homelessness resulting from the economic disruption of the COVID-19 public health crisis. The program's priority is to assist those with hardships due to a reduction in their income, job loss, or reduced work hours due to the COVID 19 pandemic, thus placing their housing in jeopardy. The program will provide rent or mortgage assistance grants for households that are delinquent on their housing costs. Applicants may apply online.
