Fact Sheet: COVID-19 Evictions in Sonoma County

Overview

This fact sheet was created in partnership with the North Bay Organizing Project to support their work in Sonoma County to advance policies that protect renters at risk of eviction during the COVID-19 emergency. Key findings include:

  • 6,000 Sonoma households – including 4,400 children – are at imminent risk of eviction and homelessness if the county's eviction moratorium is lifted because they include one or more workers who’ve lost their jobs and have no replacement income.

  • An additional 4,800 households could be at risk of eviction once the $600 weekly Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation ends.
