Property tax relief is available to eligible homeowners who have been affected by the pandemic. The California Mortgage Relief Program is providing one-time payments to qualified homeowners who have fallen behind on their housing payments. The program has extended assistance to cover past-due property taxes for homeowners whose mortgage payments are current and homeowners who are mortgage-free. Homeowners who fall in this category could receive up to $20,000 to cover past-due property taxes.

Homeowners can check to see if they are eligible to apply for the California Mortgage Relief Program by visiting CaMortgageRelief.org and clicking the “Apply Now” button. Homeowners who meet the pre-screening criteria may complete an application for funding. Application assistance is available through the program’s Contact Center at 1-888-840-2594.
