Anaheim: Eviction Protection Program

On March 24, 2020, the Anaheim City Council passed Urgency Ordinance No. 6482, effective immediately, that placed a moratorium on evictions of tenants whose inability to pay rent is due to the impacts of COVID-19. 

The ordinance is in effect until June 30, 2020, extended from its original expiration date of May 31. The ordinance applies to both residential tenants and commercial tenants, as well as their subtenants.

Tenants must take steps to notify the landlord by seven days after the day rent is due in order to gain the protections of the ordinance. 

Specifically, tenants must notify their landlords that they have a covered reason for delayed payments, provide the landlord with verifiable documentation to support the assertion of a covered reason for delayed payment, and pay the portion of the rent that they can pay.

You can read a fact sheet on the measure in English and Spanish here. You can read the ordinance presented to Council here.
