Apply for Rent Assistance

The FISH rental assistance program assists Sonoma Valley residents in need with partial rent or deposit, up to 50% of the current month’s rent. Please note: FISH can only consider applications for rent assistance from those who currently live within Sonoma Valley (from Schellville to Kenwood, in zip codes 95476, 95442, and 95452). 

FISH reviews rental applications beginning the 21st of each month and continuing through the 12th of the following month.  If you submit your application during that window, a FISH volunteer will contact you within two business days.

Although you may apply online at any time, if you submit your application outside this review period, our rent volunteers will contact you after the 21st of the month.
