Paycheck Protection Program for Small Business + Rental Assistance

The Paycheck Protection Program prioritizes millions of Americans employed by small businesses by authorizing up to $349 billion toward job retention and certain other expenses.

Small businesses and eligible nonprofit organizations, Veterans organizations, and Tribal businesses described in the Small Business Act, as well as individuals who are self-employed or are independent contractors, are eligible if they also meet program size standards.


April 8 is the deadline to notify your landlord of non-payment or partial payment for rent due April 1.

COVID-19 Renters Hero Graphic


Governor Gavin Newsom recently issued an executive order banning the enforcement of eviction orders for renters affected by COVID-19 through May 31, 2020. The order provides immediate relief to tenants for whom rent was due on April 1 and prohibits landlords from evicting tenants for nonpayment of rent and prohibits enforcement of evictions by law enforcement or courts.

If you are a renter, you are required to declare in writing, no more than seven days after your rent comes due, that you cannot pay all or part of their rent due to COVID-19. This means, for rent due April 1, that you have until April 8 at the latest to notify your landlord of partial or non-payment due to COVID-19.

As a tenant, you will be required to retain documentation but are not required to submit it to the landlord in advance. The tenant remains obligated to repay full rent in a timely manner and could still face eviction after the enforcement moratorium is lifted.
