Bay Area Covid-19 Resources

Welcome! At Bay Rising, we know that we’ll pull through crises like COVID-19 when we pull together with community power and political power. That’s why we put together this searchable resource page, available to anyone who needs it. We hope you find it helpful.

Use the search options below, or scroll down to see all resources. Questions? Email us at info@bayrising.org!

Note: Currently we are listing resources mostly for San Francisco and the East Bay, including statewide and nationwide resources. We hope to add in more resources specific to the South Bay and other parts of the Bay Area in the coming weeks.

Family, Youth & Children

Governor Newsom issued an executive order to allow current recipients of safety net programs in California (CalWORKs, CalFresh, In-Home Supportive Services, Medi-Cal, and Cash Assistance for Immigrants) to continue receiving them without interruption during this time. CalFresh and CalWORKs recipients will receive extra assistance during COVID-19. Families in the Emergency Response & Family Maintenance program will also receive additional monthly supplements.

CalWORKS provides cash aid to eligible families with a child(ren) in the home. New applications are processed in 15 working days instead of 45. Qualified CalWORKS recipients who can’t pay for their basic needs will get up to $200 within 3 days and a full CalWORKS check in 3 days if you have an eviction notice. You may also receive $85/day for a motel ($15/per person extra if more than 4 people) for up to 16 days, or get up to two months rent to prevent an eviction.

See more in our resources on Food Assistance & Supplies and Health & Mental Health Care.

Financial Support & Funds

All student loan payments and interest on federal loans are paused from March 13 through September 30. Most borrowers who lose their jobs or have their hours cut may be eligible for a reduced monthly payment as low as $0 per month for 1 year through a Federal Income-Driven Repayment plan. Loans that do not qualify are commercially-held Federal Family Education Loans (FFEL), Perkins Loans owned by your college, and private loans.

Contact your loan servicer online or by phone to determine if your loans are eligible. If you do not know who your servicer is or how to contact them, visit StudentAid.gov/login or call 1-800-4-FED-AID (1-800-433-3243; TTY 1-800-730-8913) for assistance.

Below are dozens of government programs and independent funds that offer financial assistance to individuals or families impacted by COVID-19, including support for rent and for service workers who have lost their jobs and immigrants.

Housing & Utilities

California courts have issued rulings that stop all evictions except those necessary to protect public health and safety for the duration of  the COVID‐19 emergency. This will apply until 90 day after the Governor lifts the state of emergency related to the COVID‐19 pandemic, or until it is amended or repealed by the Judicial Council. During the State of Emergency, landlords cannot raise rent by more than 10%. If you are facing a rent increase above 10%, write to your landlord using this Tenants Together sample letter guide, and file a claim with the CA Attorney General’s office here

The US Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) has enacted a 90-day moratorium on foreclosures and evictions for FHA-insured single family mortgages.

Many local governments have passed emergency ordinances that provide additional protections for renters, tenants in affordable housing units and SROs (single room occupancy or residential hotels). Tenants Together has been tracking local eviction protections, and you can check whether your city has enacted stronger renter protections that may cover you here. More resources and services in your local area are below. 

California’s renters and homeowners are also protected from utility shut offs during the COVID-19 emergency. Plus, the California Public Utilities Commission has temporarily suspended its rule requiring people with low incomes to re-enroll in the Lifeline wireless and home landline services. Many utility and mobile phone service providers are halting terminations, waiving late fees and increasing services, and some have set up payment assistance programs. Call your utility provider and see what programs they have put in place that you might qualify for. 

Below are resources to get advice on rent and utilities in your local area.

All ICE check-ins at 630 Sansome St. and ISAP check-ins at 325 Pacific in SF are rescheduled. Home visits by ISAP are suspended until further notice. ICE enforcement actions are expected to continue, but the agency announced on March 18 that enforcement will be focused on people who are considered “public safety risks”. Testing and treatment of COVID-19 will NOT be used against immigrants in a Public Charge test and ICE will not carry out enforcement operations at or near health care facilities. Immigrant families should seek the care they need during this time.

Worker Funds & Workplace Protections

If you are laid off or working reduced hours, or temporarily out of work and plan to return to the same employer, apply for Unemployment Insurance online or call 800-300-5616 (you may experience long wait time on the phone). You can also reach out to one of the organizations below for support. 

California’s paid sick leave law gives most workers paid time off to recover from an illness or to care for a sick family member, accruing at least 1 hour of sick leave for every 30 hours worked. Your local governments may also have existing or emergency paid sick leave laws that allow you to have additional paid time off. You may also be eligible to receive up to 6 weeks of partial pay to care for an ill or quarantined family member with COVID-19 under CA Paid Family Leave (PFL) law. File a PFL claim online here

If you are unable to work due to medical quarantine or COVID-19, you may be eligible to receive Disability Insurance and up to 70% of your pay. If you were exposed to and contracted COVID-19 at work and are unable to work, you may qualify for Workers’ Compensation and may receive up to two-thirds of your gross wages.

See undocumented immigrants’ eligibility for these benefits here.
