Governor Newsom, Legislative Leaders Announce Eviction Moratorium Extension, Increased Compensation for Rent Relief

Sacramento, CA...Governor Gavin Newsom and legislative leaders of both the Senate and the Assembly today announced a proposed extension of California’s statewide evictions moratorium, and an increase in compensation for California’s rent relief program.

The three-party agreement on AB 832 – which extends the current eviction moratorium through September 30, 2021 – will ensure that California quickly uses the more than $5 billion in federal rental assistance to help the state’s tenants and small landlords and protect vulnerable households from eviction. The agreement widens rental assistance by enhancing current law. Provisions include increasing reimbursement to 100 percent for both rent that is past due and prospective payments for both tenants and landlords. Additionally, the bill ensures rental assistance dollars stay in California by prioritizing cities and counties with unmet needs, and uses the judicial process to ensure tenants and landlords have attempted to obtain rental assistance.

Governor Gavin Newsom:

“California is coming roaring back from the pandemic, but the economic impacts of COVID-19 continue to disproportionately impact so many low-income Californians, tenants and small landlords alike. That’s why I am thankful for today’s news from the Legislature – protecting low-income tenants with a longer eviction moratorium and paying down their back-rent and utility bills – all thanks to the nation’s largest and most comprehensive rental assistance package, which I am eager to sign into law as soon as I receive it.”

Senate President pro Tempore Toni G. Atkins (D-San Diego):
“Our housing situation in California was a crisis before COVID, and the pandemic has only made it worse — this extension is key to making sure that more people don’t lose the safety net helping them keep their home. While our state may be emerging from the pandemic, in many ways, the lingering financial impact still weighs heavily on California families. People are trying to find jobs and make ends meet and one of the greatest needs is to extend the evictions moratorium—which includes maximizing the federal funds available to help the most tenants and landlords possible—so that they can count on a roof over their heads while their finances rebound.”

Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Lakewood):

“The key thing is to recognize that people in rental housing are still facing financial obstacles, even as our economy reopens. This moratorium will keep families in homes, provide critical financial support to landlords, and help protect our supply of rental housing.”

Assemblymember David Chiu (D-San Francisco), Chair of the Assembly Housing and Community Development Committee:

“Even though our state has reopened, hundreds of thousands of Californians are grappling with rental debt and the threat of eviction. Removing eviction protections now, while billions of rent relief dollars are still available, would be a disaster and exacerbate our homelessness crisis. This proposal avoids a massive eviction cliff, allowing us to keep tenants in their homes and get landlords the financial support they need.”

Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco), Chair of the Senate Housing Committee:

“We’ve made strides in ending this pandemic, but its impact will continue to reverberate through our economy. Many renters are still out of work. Thousands of families tragically lost someone in their household to COVID-19, which can be both emotionally and financially devastating. We need to ensure our social safety net stays strong, so every Californian can stay stably housed.”

Details on the proposed extension can be found in AB 832, which will be in print today.

This is unnecessary. These lowlifes just want a handout instead of getting a job and paying rent that is due. Newsom is another ass hole Demorat who wants people to rely on the state.

Win. win.

      Yes, the very wealthy in California.

      Unlike most states, California taxes capital gains — mostly money made from investments and stocks — the same as money made from wages and salaries. The result is 1% of the population accounts for nearly half of the state's income tax collections.

        Because others have inherited, worked, educated themselves and made intelligent choices you are jealous. You should never be entitled to others money just because you have made bad choices in life. Many poor immigrants with nothing came to this country and made a great and wealthy life for themselves making good choices. I am so sick of paying for stupid inbreeds who keep procreating.

    Agreed! It does help landlords and keeps some from becoming homeless. Also, the renters are expected to pay back rent when they do get on their feet. A lot of the money being handed out to landlords or businesses is in the form of no/low interest loans.

    There are more homeless people that didn't choose that life and don't want it. It was forced on them because of unexpected circumstances, like loss of a job and not finding a new one quickly. The cost of rentals is way more than what many can afford on their income. The cost of living is increasing way beyond the pay increases that many are not able to make it any more.

    It is really sad that such a rich country with so many smart hard working people has the homeless situation and hungry children that we have.

    Yes there are lazy people out there looking for a handout and take advantage of the system but they are the exception. Most people want to work and take care of themselves and their family.

      "Most people want to work and take care of themselves and their family."

      No they don't. The generations of welfare Mothers and Fathers just keep producing children for a paycheck, it's all they know. They are not smart enough to want anything better for themselves or their children. Many on the streets are these people whose children are over 18 and the checks stopped. They are not smart enough to take care of themselves.

        Up to 60% of the homeless are working one or more jobs but rentals in this country or the area they are in is higher than they make or can afford.

        Yes there are "those people" that are homeless because they lost their meal ticket when the kids turned 18 but they are only a minority of the homeless. You are type-casting the homeless and that is wrong!

        Once homeless, the step back into the mainstream is an extremely hard struggle. But many keep trying and many have made it.

    We all agree here, this is much better than getting a job and doing the right thing. The more we go backwards the better it is for Americans. Rock bottom is the place to be. Perhaps we can borrow money from China!!!

There you go again Newsome Helping Californians again. Bunch of BS. I hate Californians. Therefore I hate newsome. In fact I hate my wife and everyone. I’m a miserable uneducated person.
Even though there’s a huge surplus in the budget I know you’ve over spent somewhere. Kind of like I did for my enormous truck that I drive 3 miles to work everyday. But that’s my choice. Not the taxpayers
Let’s get back to trumpism. Let’s give the tax cuts back to the rich. Then we’ll see some high paying jobs in calaveras
Everything is going so wrong.
