A: In California, if you have been approved for renters relief but have not received payment, it's important to continue following up with the agency responsible for the relief program. Keep records of all communications, including dates, names of individuals you spoke with, and the content of those conversations. This documentation can be crucial if further action is needed.

Since you are experiencing delays and additional requests for tasks, consider reaching out to your local representatives or a housing advocacy group for assistance. They can often intervene on your behalf and may help expedite the process. Additionally, you can contact the agency directly to inquire about the specific reasons for the delay and any additional information they require.

If these steps do not resolve the issue, you may want to seek legal advice. An attorney can help you understand your rights and may be able to assist in communicating with the agency to ensure your approved funds are disbursed. Remember, being persistent and keeping detailed records are key in resolving these kinds of administrative issues.
