SF BAY AREA RENTAL ASSISTANCE (RAP)

What’s the RAP?

If you can’t pay or are behind in your rent, you may be able to avoid having an eviction filed against you. MYREM, Inc. offers a RAP. The RAP provides donations, interest-free loans and grants to tenants/small business owners residing in the cities and counties of San Francisco, Oakland, and Alameda County who have fallen behind in their rent due to a temporary financial setback.

Fundraising events are held to help raise the funds. Every qualified applicant is entitled to 2 months of funds to help bridge the gap of need. Every qualified applicant is entitled to our services once a year dated one year out from the date of acceptance of services from MYREM, Inc.
