ABSTRACT

California Housing Precarity in the Context of Coronavirus Pandemic   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Executive Summary: "Earlier this year, California Governor Gavin Newsom gave a speech where he spoke about the extreme level of homelessness in the state, saying, the 'California Dream is dimmed by the wrenching reality of families, children, and seniors living unfed on a concrete bed.' [...] The State must take immediate action to provide long-term protection for renters and homeowners, but must not forget about residential landlords, many of whom find themselves facing financial uncertainty due to the coronavirus. The solution is for California to forgive rent payments but also directly compensate residential landlords for missed rental payments, which will have the benefit of ensuring that residential landlords are able to make their own fixed payments. As shown through polling by Data for Progress of Californians, voters want their government officials to protect people from losing their homes and falling into financial despair."
