• West Coast Mask Initiative Wants to Thank You!


    As most of you know, during the beginning of the pandemic the IA asked 705 and 892 to spear head a mask making initiative to help front line workers. To date, with the help of hundreds of members, we have made 44,793 masks and have just over 500 medical masks still to be made. Local 892 is making a documentary of the initiative and would like to give every last member who helped the thank you they deserve!

    Eligible households:

    · Have experienced financial hardship because of COVID‐19
    · Have past due rent or utility bills
    · Have a household income under 80% of the area median income

    · Rent Debt
    · Future Rent

    How does it work?

    If you are a landlord, you can apply directly to be reimbursed for 80% of your eligible renters’ unpaid rent from April 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021, if you agree to waive the remaining 20%.

    If you are a renter, you can apply directly to receive 25% of your unpaid rent from April 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021, even if your landlord doesn’t participate. You can also receive assistance for future rent equal to 25% of your monthly rent. Renters can also get 100% of past due utility payments from April 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021, as well as up to 12 months of future utility bills.

    Documentation needed:

    Renters must provide documentation of COVID-19 related financial hardship, such as a recent pay stub, job termination notice, unemployment assistance, etc.

    Landlords must provide verification of residence ownership and rent owed. More information here.

    Once an application has been processed, both the landlord and renter will be notified about the application status and next steps.
