EBHO calls for Moratorium on Evictions during COVID 19 pandemic

Today, EBHO joins advocacy groups across the East Bay in calling for a moratorium on evictions during the outbreak of COVID 19, which has interfered with people’s ability to work and called on many individuals to provide care for sick family and community.

Letter to Berkeley’s Mayor & City Council

“At such a time, it is critical to preserve housing stability in the community. EBHO calls on you to join the cities of San Francisco, San Jose and today, Oakland, in quickly introducing and then passing an ordinance on an urgency basis to place a moratorium on new eviction and foreclosure filings, to continue cases slated for trial for the next 30 days, and to place money in a special fund to provide up to two months of rental assistance for individuals who need it.”
