Residents In This Calif City Earning Up To $141K A Year Eligible For Rent Relief

In the California city of Milpitas,  in which the school district asked for community members to rent rooms to teachers who they said couldn't afford housing, a person making $141,550 is eligible for a rent and relief program paid by taxpayer dollars.

The city is spending $950,000 from the federal American Rescue Plan on its rent-and-mortgage relief program “to help low- and moderate-income residents who have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Milpitas is in Santa Clara County, home to Silicon Valley and some of the most expensive home prices in the U.S.
