Emergency Financial Assistance

EFA (formerly AIDS Emergency Fund) provides financial assistance to low-income San Francisco residents living with HIV/AIDS. EFA has two programs: Emergency Assistance (EA) and Eviction Prevention (EP).

The Emergency Assistance (EA) grant provides up to $500 per grant cycle, and can be used to help with housing, medical expenses, and/or utility bills. Other restrictions may apply.

PRC’s Emergency Financial Assistance sees clients in-person, Monday through Friday, from 9:00 am-12:00 pm. Checks are distributed Thursdays.

Effective Tuesday, January 18th, 2022, Emergency Financial Assistance (EFA) will have drop-in new hours from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm only.

Eviction Prevention

The Eviction Prevention (EP) grant can be used either to help pay move-in costs (deposit, 1st month) or to prevent eviction. A referral from a case manager, social worker, or lawyer is required. This grant provides up to $1000 per grant cycle, depending on need, and can be combined with the EA grant if eligible.
