The Housing is Key campaign connects tenants and landlords with important information about relief and protections under the new state law. Due to recent changes, you may be protected through June 30, 2021, as a result of rent owed due to a COVID-19-related hardship. https://ucilaw.neotalogic.com/a/Cal-Covid-Info-App-for-Tenants-and-Landlords

NAACP San Diego Branch Eviction Town Hall
Housing rules and regulations are changing fast, with local, State, and National action. On January 22nd of this year, the NAACP San Diego Branch brought together housing advocates from various organizations to discuss who you can go to for help if you are threatened with eviction. We recorded our Townhall for you to view at any time.
We are very grateful to the agencies who do this work and took the time to share what they do and how you can get help.
