Tenant-Based Rental Assistance

The City of Arcata's Tenant-Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) Program is closed to new applicants as of May 31st, 2022.

The TBRA Program is designed to assist low-income households with rent payments in the City of Arcata. This program also offers assistance covering the cost of security deposits and utility deposits. Once an applicant is approved, rental assistance is provided for one year and may be renewed depending on funding availability.

To qualify for the program, applicants must earn less than 60% of Humboldt County’s median income and provide all required documentation included in the application process. Priority will be given to seniors, age 55 and older, who currently reside in Arcata in addition to unhoused families and individuals.
