Statewide Eviction Moratorium and Rent Relief

On January 29, the State of California adopted legislation (SB 91) that extends the Tenant, Homeowner, and Small Landlord Relief Act (AB 3088). SB 91’s Tenant Relief Act extends eviction protections for tenants experiencing COVID-19 financial hardship effective immediately. All residential properties in Mountain View are covered, including single-family homes, condos/townhomes, duplexes, apartments, mobile homes and mobile home spaces and other types of residential rental units.

SB 91 also provides financial assistance to tenants and small property owners impacted by COVID-19. The application for California tenants and landlords is available at housing.ca.gov. A list of supporting organizations and their contact information are available on that site. The list includes community organizations in each county that are available to help with applications.

Tenants are protected by, and tenants and landlords must follow, the State’s eviction moratorium requirements. It is important that tenants and landlords know that the State law has different noticing and past-due rent repayment requirements than the City’s previous law. Up-to-date online forms and information are now available at MountainView.gov/EvictionRelief.

The City also hosts weekly webinars to inform the community about the eviction moratorium. To register in advance please visit: mountainview.gov/emwebinars

If you need assistance or would like to learn more about the eviction moratorium, please contact the Mountain View Rental Housing Helpline by emailing [email protected] or calling (650) 282-2514.

The City of Mountain View Rent Relief Program provides financial assistance to qualifying tenants impacted by COVID-19. Rent relief is available for tenants who qualify. Please contact the Community Services Agency to learn more by visiting csacares.org, emailing [email protected] or calling 650-968-0836.

VTA transportation to a COVID Vaccine appointment

If you need transportation to a COVID Vaccine appointment, the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) has created an interactive map to help residents navigate routes to get to vaccination sites. The map allows users to click on a vaccination location. Once they do, they will be taken to the Google Maps transit option to find the most efficient route to the destination. The link for the VTA map can be accessed at vta.org. View map.

Transit trips on VTA buses and light-rail vehicles are currently free.

VTA customer service can also help residents navigate transit routes to vaccination sites. Those who need help can email [email protected] or call 408-321-2300. While VTA will assist with transportation routes, residents should visit sccFreeVax.org or call 211 to book appointments or learn more about vaccinations in Santa Clara County.

Vaccination for Homebound

The Mountain View Senior Center would like to share the following information provided by Santa Clara County about Vaccination for Homebound Seniors.

Santa Clara County continues to expand its COVID-19 vaccination outreach efforts. The County is introducing a new program to provide in-home vaccinations for homebound residents. Residents can email [email protected] or call (408)970-2818 for more information or to register.

To be eligible for this program, residents must meet the Medicare definition of homebound: Patients are considered “confined to the home” or “homebound” if they meet both of these criteria:

  • Patients either need supportive devices such as crutches, canes, wheelchairs, walkers, special transportation, or help from someone else to leave their home, due to illness or injury, OR have a condition that makes leaving the home medically inadvisable.
  • There must exist a normal inability to leave home; AND leaving home must require a considerable and taxing effort.
