On Thursday, September 2, from 10:30 AM to 3:00 PM, the Santa Clara County Superior Court, with county and community partners, is holding an event where renters and landlords can learn about and apply for emergency rental assistance programs. Qualifying renters and landlords impacted by COVID-19 are now eligible for 100% rent and utilities owed. If you know someone struggling with rent and/or utilities due to COVID-19 there will be trained staff available, on-site and in-person, to provide information and assist residents and landlords with their rent relief applications.
Located at 201 North First St. San Jose, CA 95113, the 8th floor Judicial Conference Room at the Family Justice Center Courthouse will be open from 10:30 AM – 3:00 PM. Proper face coverings are required in the courthouse.

“In Santa Clara County and throughout the Bay Area, many are struggling financially and unable to pay rent due to the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. This affects tenants and landlords alike. It is important that everyone know there is assistance available. Our Court is reaching out in partnership with local government to help connect all those financially impacted by the pandemic with the rental relief assistance that is now available to them,” said Presiding Judge Theodore C. Zayner.
