Rental Assistance

If you owe back rent that you need help paying, please contact RADCo:

CALL (415) 470-5211

We are operating both remotely and in-person now. All services are provided over the phone, via email, or at our 1338 Mission St office. Please check the main page for our hours of operation.

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.

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 plan to stay in your home for at least six months.

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.
