Some L.A. (city) residents who've had trouble making rent due to the pandemic can apply for rental assistance beginning on March 30.

The city's Housing and Community Investment Department is offering more than $20 million in state and federal funds to support low-income renters and rental property owners.

Applicants have to make no more than 50% of the area median income -- that means about $39,450 for one person.

The last day to apply is April 30.

BTW, the state launched its rental assistance program, Housing Is Key, and is currently accepting applications.
