The city of Long Beach is trippin. They hired this company called Yardi to provide administration of the city’s rent relief program but they don’t have any answers on when they gonna cut the check. The City went all over the media discussing all of the COVID funding they received, most recently they got $64 million last August to help more people, but when you call Yardi for updates, they have no answers.
We keep being told to “wait” but for how much longer? Our landlords are waiting too.

I wrote this because I saw that link you shared from The Guardian that said Long Beach spent all of their COVID money on the police department. Is the City pretending to help its residents on their rent, just to get the money and give it to the police?
Mayoral elections are heading to the home stretch and none of the candidates is bringing this issue up. How are you “for the people” when the people are about to be on the street? Whose campaign has Yardi donated to?
