Please call Governor Newsom TODAY at (916) 445-2841 and urge funding for an immediate Renters and Small Landlords Survival Fund before more people lose their housing.
Your call can help stop millions of families from being evicted and also help small, struggling landlords. Leave a message for the Governor with your name and tell him "I support a Renters and Landlords Survival Fund and an extension of the eviction moratorium."
Rent Relief is Possible
Time is running out. The eviction moratorium expires at the end of January 2021. Make the call now.
You Can Help
After you make the call, contact your legislator in the form on the right. We need as much support as possible to help keep renters in their homes and support small landlords now.
COVID-19 RELIEF: Use this form to contact your legislators in Sacramento. Urge them to use the state's windfall to provide $5 billion in rent relief, which also helps small landlords. California desperately needs a Renters & Landlords Survival Fund!
Lawmakers must also extend the statewide eviction moratorium well into 2021. People need long-term protection.
By contacting your state representatives, we can help millions of Californians stay healthy and safe.
Time is running out to take action. Contact your legislators today!

I was tested positive for covid-19 on June 21st 2020 and I'm on welfare CalWORKs in a $1,295 apartment monthly paid. Due to coronavirus I am not receiving stimulus checks or the support that I'm supposed to be receiving. I'm pregnant, and being pressured by landlord for late payments, unable to take care of any bills due to Riverside Human Services keeping me on isolation for covid-19 in my lungs.
I'm reaching out to many locations and people and still not receiving the services I need. How come I am denied social security? I don't understand why a single mother has to stress and be pregnant worrying about if I'm going to be evicted or how I'm going to provide for my children. I'm in a crisis I'm losing my home!
I used to live in the city of Oakland, but the rent went up so high, that I now live in Sacramento---and even here, the greed is not only glaringly obvious but palatable as well!! I'm paying 1095/month for my 900 sq ft apartment, and it WILL go up in February to an amount that is almost out of reach for a Senior!!! Most of my Social Security goes to my rent, and I have VERY little to live on.
This is a seriously ridiculous and greedy situation, as most of the owners of these properties DO NOT LIVE IN THE US; and if they do, they have VERY LITTLE emotion to the plight of those who are trying to live within their means! It is about time for the California Government to come in with legislation which will make it easier on those of us who live on a fixed income; and those who are of even MORE limited income as well.
WHO IS AFFECTED?
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, renters are hurting and face an eviction tsunami. Small landlords are struggling to stay afloat. We need urgent solutions for California’s housing and public health crisis. Now.
That’s why Housing is a Human Right is fighting to extend the state-wide moratorium on evictions AND proposing new legislation that would use California’s budget surplus money to send renters and small landlords relief checks.
HOW WILL THIS BENEFIT ME?
Extending the state-wide moratorium on evictions will keep families and hardworking Californians in their homes over the holidays and into the new year. But how will they pay for rent once the moratorium expires? California legislators can and should send residents stimulus relief checks to help cover months of back rent.
As the COVID-19 pandemic rages on, join our fight to keep Californians in their homes. Call your legislators today and urge them to take action on relief for renters and small landlords now.
