California reaches major milestone in spending federal rent relief dollars before eviction protections change on October 1
By Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency

SACRAMENTO – The California COVID-19 Rent Relief Program marks another significant milestone today with $650 million paid out to 55,000 households as the state prepares to transition to new eviction protections that take effect from October 1, 2020 to March 31, 2022. 

“The COVID-19 pandemic left many families without the income needed to cover their rent and stay in their homes,” said Lourdes Castro Ramírez, Secretary of the Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency. “And too many tenants have lived with the fear of eviction. We have moved quickly to disburse help to renters and landlords, assisting nearly 55,000 households.”
