From KPBS San Diego:
The city of San Diego and the San Diego Housing Commission have been awarded $8.3 million from the federal government to support the COVID-19 Housing Stability Assistance Program, it was announced Wednesday.
The funds were reallocated from other jurisdictions across the country. San Diego received the third-most reallocated funds in the nation, following Harris County, Texas — which includes Houston — with $8.6 million, and Philadelphia with $8.36 million.
"These additional rent relief dollars are coming because the federal government recognizes the outstanding job San Diego has done of getting previously allocated funding out the door and into the hands of renters in need of help," said Mayor Todd Gloria, who recently met with American Rescue Plan Coordinator Gene Sperling to advocate for additional relief funds.
