Residents of the Inland Empire find a lifeline in the rent reduction plan

Like many people, Trina Harper lost her job when the coronavirus pandemic began.

The 51-year-old Chino resident worked as a safety attendant at an oil refinery, initially relying on his savings to support himself and his three grandchildren. But earlier this year, after her account ran out, she sought basic necessities, such as rent, from the government.

“I saved a lot of money,” Harper said. “I heard about this project in the small community where I live. I ignored it for the first time, but once my savings went down, I was a little desperate.”

Stories such as Harper’s are the reason why governments (including San Bernardino and Riverside counties) introduced rent reduction programs. The livelihoods of many Inland Empire families were hit by the pandemic, and they found themselves on the verge of being deported. Therefore, the inland county government cooperates with non-profit organizations to provide financial assistance to pay rent and provide other guidance.

Harper first applied for state plan housing is the key, and said that she waited two months to get an answer. After that, she received a call saying that her application had been accepted through Inland SoCal United Way, which has cooperated with San Bernardino County to develop a local rent reduction program.
