To assist residential renters who have been economically impacted by the Coronavirus, the Mayor and the City Council have adopted tenant protections on evictions and rent increases in the City of Los Angeles.
On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the Coronavirus (COVID-19) as a pandemic. On March 15th, Los Angeles Mayor Garcetti issued an Emergency Order which implemented measures to protect the public and contain the risk of contracting the COVID-19 virus. Additionally, on March 23rd the Mayor issued a temporary moratorium on evictions for non-payment of rent for tenants who are unable to pay rent due to circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
On March 30th, the Mayor halted rent increases on occupied rental units that are subject to the City’s Rent Stabilization Ordinance (RSO). Effective March 31, 2020, Ordinance No. 20-0147-S19 expands protections for tenants during the local emergency in response to COVID-19. Together, these actions are designed to prevent unnecessary housing displacement and to prevent housed individuals from falling into homelessness.Read More »

With the global spread of COVID-19, more commonly known as the Corona Virus, the City of Los Angeles has taken a number of steps to control the spread of the outbreak and to protect our community. The MVCC Board of Directors supports those efforts so, in compliance with Mayor Garcetti’s directive, entitled “COVID-19 City Guidelines,” all MVCC board, committee, alliance, and liaison meetings - as well as all other NC-related events - are suspended through March 31, 2020.
Please be safe during this time by taking common-sense measures such as frequent hand washing and avoidance of close personal content. For additional steps and more detailed information, please visit the CDC's Corona Virus page at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html
