Help For City of Alameda Renters During COVID-19
On March 17, 2020, the Alameda City Council declared a local emergency to protect the public's health and safety in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. That emergency declaration is still in effect as of September 2021, as is the State of California’s emergency declaration.
The City Council has taken these emergency actions to help renters during the pandemic:
- Added eviction protections for residential and commercial tenants
- Created rent relief programs for residential tenants and small businesses
- Stopped residential rent increases in rent-controlled units (until 60 days after the City Council rescinds the local emergency, which has not happened yet)
- Funded legal services for low-income residential tenants
For more information, please contact Sarah Henry, City of Alameda Public Information Officer, at 510-747-4714 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
