As you may have already seen or heard Los Angeles County under Governor Newsom signed (AB) 832 into law, which extends protections for residential and mobile home space renters. These new protections would be extended through September 30, 2021.


The City of LA's stance has remained unchanged and "the City's Emergency Declaration is still in effect and will continue to be effective until further notice." The City of LA's ordinance protects tenants who have unpaid rent due to COVID-19 until August 1, 2022.


Until we hear anything further from any governing body I want to provide details of the assistance that is available to both Landlords and Tenants.


The CA COVID-19 Rent Relief Program - "helps income-eligible households with rent and utilities, both for past due and future payments." (source: housing.ca.gov.)

  • Renters and Landlords can apply

  • Help with Unpaid or Future Rent & Utilities

  • Landlords may receive assistance for income-eligible tenants (calculated by the state when they apply)

  • The eligible timeframe for assistance dates back to April 1, 2020

The Los Angeles Rental Owners Collaborative (LROC) is a new philanthropic program backed by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg & his wife Priscilla Chan) that aims to provide local rental owners in South Los Angeles with:

  • Rental relief grants to off-set rental income loss

  • Financial consulting and coaching

  • Connections to local, state, and federal relief programs

  • Access to resources that can help add value and/or reduce costs and increase profitability over time, so you can maintain your assets for years to come.

By providing a direct cash flow of $5 million to South LA Landlords impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the initiative aims to ensure that wealth is built within the community, properties remain locally owned, and affordability to locals.
