If you are behind in your rent, you may be able to avoid having an eviction filed against you. Our Rental Assistance Disbursement Component (RADCo) provides interest-free loans and grants to tenants residing in the City and County of San Francisco who have fallen behind in their rent due to a temporary financial setback.

If you are behind in your rent, you may be able to avoid having an eviction filed against you.

To qualify for rental assistance EDC staff must approve your application and you must meet the following criteria:

  • You live in San Francisco and are not a Housing Authority tenant.
  • Your household has sufficient income to pay your future rent and expenses.
  • You have lived in the home for at least 1 year and have paid rent for at least 1 year.
  • You plan to stay in your home for at least six months.
  • You have never received Rental Assistance from the EDC before, OR, if you have received a loan, you have paid it back in full.

Note: You do not have to have a three-day notice to qualify for help. Likewise, you may still be able to get help even if you have already been sued for eviction.

If you drop-in at our office or if you have an appointment, be sure to bring the following documentation with you. This will speed up the application process.

  • Proof of the amount of rent owed through the end of the current month.
  • Proof of the regular amount of your monthly/weekly rent.
  • Proof of how long you have lived in your home.
  • Proof of total household income.
  • Photo ID.
