COVID–19 requires us to take care of one another in new and urgent ways.

We know that our families and neighborhoods are stronger, safer and healthier when we join together and demand proven solutions to enable us all to weather a crisis and ensure our wellbeing. 

Since the start of the COVID–19 pandemic, EBHO staff and members have been working to advocate for eviction moratoriums, rent relief funding for those unable to pay rent or mortgage because of lost income, emergency housing for unhoused people, and funding for operational expenses for nonprofit developers during COVID–19. We have also developed resource pages, which are frequently updated by our Policy team staff members.

This page is a centralized hub to access our COVID–19 Housing Policy page, which tracks eviction moratorium information for the East Bay, and COVID–19 Get Support page, which shares information on how to secure the state- and federally-funded rental assistance for renters and housing providers who lost income because of COVID–19.

As we advocate for critical protections during the COVID–19 pandemic, we continue our ongoing work to advocate for affordable homes for low-income people in the East Bay through our member-based committees that now meet online.

Sign up for our Email updates to stay up to date with key policy changes, calls for community action, and our programming to protect, preserve, and create affordable homes for all low-income people in the East Bay.
