San Bernardino County has established an emergency rental assistance program that will disperse more than $46.8 million in rental assistance to residents affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and economic shutdown. The funds were provided through the federal Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021.

The San Bernardino County Rent Relief Partnership, established in collaboration with Inland SoCal 211+, will contribute up to 12 months of overdue rent and/or potential rent payments to residents who have struggled to make payments. Applicants can apply for arrears accrued from March 13, 2020 to present and the program will be available through Dec. 31, 2021 or until all funds are exhausted.

This program will bring much-needed relief to tenants trying desperately to stay in their homes and, in turn, landlords who have been hard-hit by the economic effects of the pandemic.

For more information and to submit an application to receive assistance, please visit the County’s Rent Relief website or the ISC211 website.

San Bernardino County Signs MOU with IFEZ to Strengthen Economic Cooperation and Increase Business Opportunity


The County of San Bernardino and the Incheon Economic Free Zone Authority of the Republic of Korea (IFEZ) have announced the official renewal for their memorandum of understanding ( MOU) to proactively strengthen economic cooperation. This MOU confirms the importance of enhancing the bilateral trade and investment relationship between the County and IFEZ.

San Bernardino County exports $1.1 million in goods and services to South Korea annually, underscoring the importance of building these global relationships. Many industries in the County benefit from encouraging import-export relationships with South Korea such as aerospace and defense manufacturing, lightweight materials manufacturing, food and beverage manufacturing, logistics, IT/digital information, health care, education, energy and associated materials, and tourism.

"San Bernardino County is a gateway for international trade and South Korea is a strong partner for building our import and export markets. We see an even greater opportunity to encourage more foreign direct investment in the County and in turn helping our region's businesses uncover new markets in South Korea," said Curt Hagman, Chairman of the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors.

In 2019, San Bernardino County conducted a trade mission to South Korea with a number of its local business leaders looking to increase trade relationships and sign the first MOU with IFEZ. The County's Economic Development team is now planning and organizing a potential follow-up trade mission in 2022.

The work with South Korea is one example of the County's focus on international trade and foreign direct investment. San Bernardino County has also established formal partnerships with Wuxi, China and Taoyuan, Taiwan to strengthen its international partnerships and expand economic opportunities for local businesses.

Hagman added, "Our location at the heart of Southern California and epicenter of a massive infrastructure of seaports and airports positions San Bernardino County as an important trade gateway. From our location we are able to access the world reaching destinations such as Incheon that serve as critical hub cities for Asia and its vast economies. These strategic partnerships pave the way to share both opportunities and best practices to grow San Bernardino County's economy.

IFEZ is a Korean Free Economic Zone that consists of the three regions of Songdo, Cheongna, and the island of Yeongjong. The focus of IFEZ is to transform these three areas into hubs for logistics, international business, leisure, and tourism for the Northeast Asian region.

"We look forward to working with IFEZ to nurture these relationships and build upon the excitement shared by both our regions to help each other's economies to recover and rebuild," noted San Bernardino County Interim Economic Development Director, Soua Vang.

Tunnel Vision

The Ontario Airport tunnel project by Elon Musk moves to the next phase.


The Boring Co.’s proposal was accepted and a contract for a 4-mile underground loop is on the horizon. The Ontario Airport Loop project would involve digging a tunnel under Milliken Avenue that runs west along Airport Drive. Riders would get into Tesla Model 3s or a specially-designed 12-passenger Tesla tram and travel up to 127 mph on a track for the 4-mile trip.

Upon completion, the Ontario Airport Loop would be the first rail-like connection at Ontario International Airport and could potentially carry about 1,200 people per day. The project is looking to begin operations in late 2023 or early 2024.
