IMPORTANT! Educate yourself on the State’s current eviction protections.

From now until September 30, State law prohibits landlords from evicting tenants who are behind on rent due to a COVID-19 related hardship - but you must take certain steps to qualify for these eviction protections. Visit the State of California’s "Housing is Key" website and the Law Foundation of Silicon Valley website for detailed information on these state protections and what you need to do to avoid eviction.

Need Help Paying Rent?

Rental assistance is available for low-income Santa Clara County residents who have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Both renters and landlords can apply!

All new applications for rental assistance should be directed to the statewide CA COVID-19 Rent Relief program. For more information on eligibility criteria and to start an application:

Visit HousingIsKey.com or
Call: (833) 430-2122

The Santa Clara County Homelessness Prevention System is no longer accepting new applications for COVID-19 rental assistance. However, we are continuing to process applications and assist residents who submitted an application before September 10, 2021.
