Tenant Protections for us All

If you cannot pay your rent today, your landlord cannot evict you. 

Emergency eviction protections continue to be in place for Los Angeles families through May 31st with a possible extension. This means your landlord cannot evict you and your family due to non-payment. 

If you have not done so already, please send a letter immediately to your landlord explicitly stating that your loss of income is due to the COVID-19. 

If you need support, Los Angeles County residents should call the L.A. County Disaster Help Center at (833) 238-4450 or email rent@dcba.lacounty.gov. Los Angeles City residents can call (866)-557-7368. 

Here are additional resources to help you and your family.
