A month after the California Assembly rejected a measure to provide temporary mortgage relief for homeowners affected by COVID-19, two Democrats have teamed up to nestle elements of the bill into an eviction moratorium that’s already halfway through the Legislature.

The previous effort, Assembly Bill 2501, failed on a 28-25 vote on June 15, ending Democratic Assemblywoman Monique Limón’s attempt to offset a financial burden for homeowners struggling during the pandemic.

Jobless Santa Barbarans who contacted Assemblymember Monique Limón expressed their fear and concern over the potential benefit loss: “We are hearing many stories from constituents that are struggling even with the additional $600 to meet their financial obligations,” Limón said. “They are afraid of losing their home, car, and not having access to health care. The additional dollars have become a much-needed lifeline for some families who want to go back to work but cannot for a number of reasons.” Her office has been hearing frequently from people in the last tiers of California businesses allowed to open, including hairstylists, barbers, performers and craftspeople in entertainment, and freelancers.
