Fact Sheet: COVID-19 Evictions in Contra Costa County

Overview

This fact sheet was created in partnership with the Raise the Roof Coalition to support their work in Contra Costa County to advance policies that protect renters at risk of eviction during the COVID-19 emergency. Key findings include:

  • 14,000 Contra Costa County households – including 12,100 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 8,700 households could be at risk of eviction once the Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation program ends on July 31.
