Media Coverage - Eviction Moratorium and Rent Relief Campaign

Updated: Jun 30, 2021

Hand by hand with our allies, Policy Link and Housing Now—and the support of the Berkeley Media Studies Group—we mounted a high-pressure campaign to extend California's eviction moratorium and rent relief programs.

The main element of the campaign was the survey report: Preventing an Eviction Epidemic: Delivering Effective Emergency COVID-19 Rental Assistance in California. This report was the result of hundreds of surveys with advocates across the state, working tirelessly so as many Californians as possible could benefit from the federal and state protections and funds directed by SB 91.

Below is a sample of the coverage we secured for the campaign:
