PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

For Immediate Release

Combined Community Action has been designated a recipient of the Tenant Based Rental Assistance program for Disaster Relief. CCA has designed a self-sufficiency program that works with clients to focus on a recovery plan to return to pre-disaster status. The program can assist with security deposits and up to 24 months of rent subsidies. Households must be willing to participate in a self sufficiency plan and intensive case management. Households must have earnings at or below 80% of the Area Median Family Income. Households must occupy the property as their primary residency and have been directly affected by the wildfires. We are currently accepting applications for this program, they are available on our website or you may call the agency for additional information.
