Mammoth Lakes Housing administers a variety of funding sources to provide rental assistance in our communities.

If you are in need of emergency financial support in order to pay your rent, contact us to see if we may be able to help. We will review your application, touch base with both you and your landlord via phone, and if you are eligible we may send a check directly to your landlord to help with your payment.
