Sacramento Resources

Here are list of resources for Sacramento resident's during the COVID-19 crisis:

  • Sacramento City Council announced moratorium on all COVID 19 related evictions through May 31. However, to gain the protections of the Moratorium, renters MUST notify their landlord IN WRITING before their rent is due, to inform them of impacts on their ability to pay rent resulting from COVID-19, such as reduced hours, layoffs, having to care for children and other family members, and being sick or quarantined themselves.  
    • Here is a model letter to your landlord the City has prepared here.
    • Here is a another version of the letter in English and Spanish
