Del Mar Rental Assistance Program

The City of Del Mar offers a Rental Assistance Program for low-income households, as well as low-income elderly and/or disabled individuals.  Del Mar Community Connections administers the Del Mar Rental Assistance Program on behalf of the City. The Program will cover a portion of the rent, paid on behalf of the families directly to their landlords.


There is no emergency rental assistance available. 

Please note: New applications are not currently being accepted for the

Del Mar Rental Assistance Waitlist. 

How it works ?

The rental assistance payment is determined by the family’s income and the level of allowable assistance for the type of unit for which the family is eligible.  The unit must also be inspected and approved for assistance, and the landlord must be willing to enter into a contract with the City of Del Mar.
