The Marin County COVID-19 Status Update is published weekdays and as needed to share important news and resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic and to keep the local economy running. We remain here for you.

 

Emergency Rental Assistance is Still Available 

Marin County Rental Assistance Program is open and accepting applications for unpaid rent and/or utilities from April 2020-December 2021. Currently, back rent is being paid, and at 100%. Visit the County's Rental Assistance page for more information and to begin your online application. 

California's eviction moratorium is set to expire at the end of the month on September 30. Although this legislation is set to expire in 10 days, it will continue to impose stay-on-court actions by landlords to recover COVID-19 rental debt until November 1, 2021. It also requires landlords to provide documentation they have made a good faith effort to cooperate with a tenant to obtain rental assistance. Additionally, a tenant will not be evicted if they were unable to pay rent between 4/01/20 - 9/30/2021 as long as they: 

  • Submitted a COVID Declaration of Inability to Pay to their landlord, AND 
  • Paid 25% of any rent owed from September 1, 2020 to September 30, 2021. 

A tenant does not have to pay 25% of rent owed from April 1, 2020 to August 31, 2020 in order to be protected from eviction. Use this worksheet[PDF] to calculate the 25% of rent owed. 

The Emergency Rental Assistance Program provides landlords with an opportunity to work with their renters to help repay past rent and avoid evictions.  

Weekly informational sessions about the Emergency Rental Assistance Program are being held to help landlords navigate this rent repayment option. Sessions are on Thursdays, 6:00pm to 7:00pm on Zoom (Meeting ID: 997 1252 0989, Passcode: 214134, Telephone: 1-669-900 6833).

  • Marin County Public Health has developed an online form for requesting a no-cost visit from the mobile vaccination team. This form was designed to make it even easier for all residents to be fully vaccinated. Its intended use is for:   
     

    • Businesses can request pop-up vaccination clinics at the workplace to vaccinate employees.   
    • Homebound individuals and their loved ones can request a visit to the home for vaccination.
