A non-profit housing agency on the South Coast has received more than $100,000 in grants which will be used to help low incomes families struggling during the coronavirus crisis.

The Cabrillo Economic Development Corporation received six grants totaling more than $117,000.  They include $50,000 from Wells Fargo Bank, $22,000 from Neighborworks America, and $20,000 from Bank of America.

Officials with the housing agency say most of the grant money will be used for rent and utility assistance for those in need.
