Housing is Key Campaign Provides Information on Resources for Tenants, Landlords and Homeowners
A message from Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency Secretary Lourdes M. Castro Ramírez
Housing is key. It’s critical to ensure the health and safety of our families and communities, especially during COVID-19. On August 31, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom signed the Tenant, Homeowner and Small Landlord Relief and Stabilization Act of 2020, extending eviction and foreclosure protections for Californians.
Following the signing of the Act, Governor Newsom announced the launch of the Housing Is Key campaign, aimed at connecting renters and landlords experiencing economic hardship due to COVID-19 to resources and information.
The Housing Is Key campaign provides resources to help Californians stay in their homes or understand housing options during COVID-19 and beyond. Right now, we need your help to make sure that Californians at-risk of losing the place they call home know the options that are available to them under the new law.
Housingiskey.com is the central hub of information for tenants, landlords, and homeowners on the new California Department of Real Estate site. Here, you will find guidelines, forms, and resources that will help Californians understand their options if they are facing eviction or foreclosure.
The Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency (BCSH) will post reminders on its social media accounts on an ongoing basis and appreciates you resharing on your channels. You can also expect more emails as new resources become available.
Let’s continue to work together to protect Californians’ homes. Please, share the below resources with your audiences!
