Del Mar Rental Assistance Program

The City of Del Mar offers a Rental Assistance Program for low-income households of two or more, as well as low-income elderly and/or disabled individuals.  Del Mar Community Connections administers the Del Mar Rental Assistance Program on behalf of the City.   The Program is similar to a Section 8 housing program where a portion of the rent is paid on behalf of the families directly to their landlords. 

There is no emergency rental assistance available. 

The rental assistance payment is determined by the family’s income and the level of allowable assistance for the type of unit for which the family is eligible.  The unit must also be inspected and approved for assistance, and the landlord must be willing to enter into a contract with the City of Del Mar.

In order to qualify for the program, you must meet income limit requirements established by HUD for San Diego County, and you must place your name on our waiting list. The wait may be 5-8 years, or more depending on our funding levels.  Your ranking on the wait list can change depending on the applications received and ranking criteria established by the City of Del Mar.  Top priority will be given to very low income families who live or work within the city limits of Del Mar.

Ranking priority:

  1. Very-low income individuals, specifically, elderly (62 years or older) and disabled, or families of two or more persons, living or working within the City of Del Mar limits.

  2. Low income individuals, specifically, elderly (62 years or older) and disabled, or families of two or more persons, living or working within the City of Del Mar limits.

  3. Very-low income individuals, specifically, elderly (62 years or older) and disabled, or families of two or more persons, living or working within the zip code area of 92014.

  4. Low income individuals, specifically, elderly (62 years or older) and disabled, or families of two or more persons, living or working within the zip code area of 92014.

  5. Very-low income individuals, specifically, elderly (62 years or older) and disabled, or families of two or more persons, living or working within the County of San Diego.

  6. Low income individuals, specifically, elderly (62 years or older) and disabled, or families of two or more persons, living or working within the County of San Diego.

Eligible families selected off our waiting list can choose any housing within the Del Mar City limits where an owner is willing to join the program.  If the rent is too high, the unit may not be eligible for assistance.  

The unit the family selects must meet certain standards. We will inspect the unit before any assistance is paid, and at least once a year, as long as assistance is being paid. The unit must always be in decent, safe, and sanitary condition.
