August 31, 2020: a new bill, AB 3088, protects tenants from evictions and homeowners from foreclosures until February 1, 2021.  The inability to pay rent must be related to an economic hardship between March 4 – August 31, 2020 and  tenants  must sign a declaration of hardship according to the legislature’s timelines.  For a COVID-19 related hardship experienced between September 1, 2020 and January 31, 2021 tenants must pay at least 25 percent of the rent due to avoid eviction after February 1, 2021 for the unpaid rent.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) debuted a new tool (www.consumerfinance.gov/renthelp) that allows renters and landlords to find rental assistance programs in their area.
