When the COVID-19 pandemic first hit, JFLA immediately modified its lending policies to make it easier for people to qualify for a 0% interest loan, including loans for rent. If you are working, our Personal/Emergency loan program provides interest-free loans up to $15,000 with two guarantors. A JFLA loan is unique because you pay back exactly what you borrow with no interest and no fees. Ever.
With the rent moratorium slated to end shortly, JFLA is well-poised to offer rental assistance to residents of Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties. We understand that when you need money to pay rent, you need it NOW. While help is available through state and Federal assistance programs, the process can be long and it may not work for everyone.
At JFLA, we pride ourselves on getting money into the hands of those who need it quickly. Once we receive your completed application and all relevant documents, our loans can be turned around within 7-10 business days, and sometimes sooner. That means you can get the help you need for emergency rent assistance quickly. Our loans can be used for other things too, including security deposits, moving expenses, and even medical or dental bills.
If you are struggling and need a loan to help with rent, look no further than JFLA. We have been assisting individuals and families regardless of race, religion, or gender with 0% interest loans since 1904. We’re a nonprofit organization that’s here to help.
