Eviction Moratorium on Residential and Commercial Evictions  

The City established a temporary moratorium on residential and commercial evictions resulting from loss of income, increased medical expenses, or childcare needs related to COVID-19. This moratorium was initially established on March 25, 2020 and then amended to expand eligibility on April 2, 2020. This moratorium was then amended a second time on May 5, 2020. The second amended order expands the moratorium for commercial tenancies (including self-storage) and commercial rental agreements, and establishes that the Alameda County amended Ordinance adopted April 28, 2020 governs the protections provided to residential tenants and homeowners in Livermore. In order to maintain consistency with the protections for residential tenants and homeowners in Livermore, the City will allow the amended county ordinance to govern Livermore residential evictions at this time.  As such, all Livermore residential tenants, homeowners, and landlords should review the County’s amended ordinance, which can be found here

 COVID-19 Housing & Human Services Resource Guide 

This resource guide has been created by the Housing and Human Services Division to serve as a comprehensive list of housing related resources for renters, homeowners, and landlords who have been impacted by the COVID-19 emergency.  The resource guide also provides information on local supportive services such as emergency shelters, support programs, legal services, employment services and even ways people can help local organizations assisting our community.
