Webinar on Renters' Rights During COVID-19

Webinar on Renters' Rights During COVID-19

The City of Palo Alto, and the County and State  have taken several steps to protect renters during COVID-19. The Palo Alto City Council extended our City ban on residential evictions for tenants who can’t pay their rent for reasons related to COVID-19. Residential tenants are also protected from eviction by an ordinance passed by Santa Clara County, and an Executive Order issued by Governor Gavin Newsom. 

To further support and educate renters about the eviction moratoriums, the City is participating in a webinar hosted by SV@Home on Thursday, September 10 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Palo Alto Assistant Planning  Director, Rachael Tanner, will speak about Palo Alto’s moratorium and Silicon Valley Law Foundation's Michael Trujillo will explain how the County’s moratorium applies to Palo Altans. Philip Dah, from LifeMoves’ Opportunity Center, will also be on hand to discuss the resources that exist for Palo Alto renters. To register for this webinar, click here.
