It's not clear to anyone WHY they state (like many others) hasn't paid out much in rent repayment?

I don't know enough about this issue to give an educated comment. On the surface, it seems like enough time has passed for most people to adapt to the post-covid world, and if people can't pay rent, they need to find other accommodations.

However, if people have legitimate cause for requesting rent payments from the us/cal program, they shouldn't be evicted if those payments are expected shortly. It's not the renter's fault that the government is taking forever to process claims.
