At the Vallejo Housing Justice Coalition (VHJC), we believe that housing is a human right. We envision a city with housing that is affordable and reflects the needs, diversity and culture of our community. We fight for Housing Justice across race, culture, age and sexual orientation.
On Monday, June 28, 2021, Governor Newsom signed AB 382, which will prevent some evictions and temporarily extend many just-cause protections to all California tenants through September 30, 2021.
If you cannot pay your full rent right now-- you are not alone and don’t have to move, but you must do two things to protect yourself:
1. Return an official “Declaration of COVID-Related Financial Distress” to your landlord within 15 days of getting a “pay or quit” rent non-payment notice. Repeat this each month.
2. Pay at least 25% of your missed September 2020-June 2021 rent on or before June 30, 2021.
If you're a Solano County residential or commercial tenant that's been impacted by COVID-19 and cannot pay rent, you may be eligible for additional protections against eviction. These protections are in place throughout the Governor’s State of Emergency period and for 90 more days after the State of Emergency is lifted.
