Changing rental relief and protections
Many Central Coast renters fear losing their homes as California's eviction protections and COVID-19 Renters Relief Program are both set to end at the end of this month. Local governments throughout the state will have to figure out how to help people still struggling to cover rent as COVID-19 issues continue and the economy is not yet where it was pre-COVID. To make matters worse, fraudsters are taking advantage of the pandemic and managing elaborate rental scams. The percentage of fraud triggers increased nearly 30% during the pandemic.
Join host Kris Kington-Barker as she speaks with guests Devon McQuade, Associate Director with the 5Cities Homeless Coalition, and Sadie Weller, Staff Attorney with the San Luis Obispo Legal Assistance Foundation (SLOLAF). They will talk about the end of these COVID-19 relief programs, oter available rental protections, and what you should do if you are in need of help.
You are invited to listen, learn and participate in the conversation, between 1-2 pm. Call in and be part of the discussion at (805) 549-8855 or email questions to email@example.com.
