Housing and Eviction Help Center

The Statewide Eviction Moratorium ended on September 30, 2021; however, help for both tenants and landlords is available. The City of Mountain View’s Housing and Eviction Help Center connects landlords and tenants in Mountain View with support services in effort to reduce evictions and connect community members with housing resources. Community members can access information, receive 1:1 support, and connect with services provided by our community partners by attending Housing and Eviction Help Center Clinics, webinars and pop-up events.

The Housing and Eviction Help Center provides community members with the following wraparound support services:

  • Housing Programs: Learn about rent stabilization, apply for affordable housing, and connect with rental assistance programs/check your COVID-19 rent relief status.
  • Eviction Questions: Review of eviction notices and process to help landlords and tenants understand the what's happening and potential outcomes
  • Legal Resources: Connect to legal resources and assistance
  • Support Services: Get information on food distribution, financial assistance, mediation, homelessness prevention resources and more.
