LA County Extends COVID Renter Protections Through March

LA County Extends COVID Renter Protections Through March

Struggling low-income tenants are getting a 2-month reprieve from the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, who voted on Tuesday to extend COVID-19 renter protections until March 31st. The expiration, originally slated for January 31st, could have left over 200,000 households vulnerable to eviction if they couldn’t pay February rent on time.

LAist is reporting that the supervisors passed the extension with a 3-1 vote and one abstention. Supervisor Lindsay Horvath was looking for an extension until June, fearing many individuals would be looking at homelessness as a real possibility, but compromised with Supervisor Janice Hahn who said landlords are seeking transparency from the Board.

The LA County Supes also voted in favor of setting up a relief program for small landlords dealing with the lack of rental income. The Board forwarded a motion to investigate potential funding for a $45 million program designed to help landlords with no more than four rental units who agree not to evict tenants for unpaid rent.
