Watch: Help for homeowners, renters, and people who are homeless

CalMatters housing reporter Matt Levin will moderate a virtual discussion on Thursday, April 23, at 4 p.m. on what help is available for homeowners and renters struggling to make mortgage payments and rents, and what can be done to help homeless Californians while shelter-in-place orders are in effect.

Speakers include:

  • Lisa Sitkin, Senior Staff Attorney, National Housing Law Project
  • Sasha Harnden, Housing Policy Advocate at Western Center for Law and Poverty
  • Tomiquia Moss, founder and chief executive of All Home

Questions addressed will include:

  • What options do mortgage-holders have if they can’t afford their payments?
  • How does California’s eviction moratorium work, and what rights do renters have?
  • How can average Californians volunteer at food banks and homeless shelters while maintaining safe social distancing protocols?
