Foothill Unity Center has been granted by the Local Initiatives Support Corporation, or LISC, to assist renters.
For more than 42 years, Foothill Unity Center has helped individuals and families in the San Gabriel Valley move out of poverty to reach economic stability.
LISC works with local governments, large corporations, community development organizations and other nonprofits to revitalize neighborhoods and nurture economic growth and opportunity.
It has been chosen to assist the state of California in implementing the Emergency Rental-Assistance program.
Foothill Unity Center is proud to work in partnership with LISC to assist those in the community who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic with rent and utility payments.
The center will provide local, on-the-ground and in-language support to help clients who applied to the COVID-19 Rent Relief program.
Whether it’s helping non-English speakers, those without access to the internet or applicants who face other challenges, the combined knowledge and experience of the LISC and Foothill Unity Center will provide one-on-one support to qualified applicants as they move through the program.
