Emergency Eviction Moratorium

The City Council approved a temporary emergency eviction moratorium on March 31. The moratorium prohibits residential evictions as of March 12, 2020 if a tenant is unable to pay rent during the COVID-19 emergency. The tenant must show proof of hardship to their landlord and pay back all rent within 180 days after the local emergency has ended. The County of Santa Clara’s eviction moratorium extends protection to small businesses. Tenants needing assistance communicating with their landlord should contact Project Sentinel. For general questions about the eviction moratorium, contact Housing.
