Community Investment Department (HCID+LA) to conduct a further program evaluation with a focus on the programmatic structure and options to maintain the program at current funding levels. The COVID-19 pandemic has been ongoing for over seven months, during which time the City has adopted a temporary eviction moratorium and rent increase freeze that has resulted in rental housing providers experiencing severe financial impacts and significant losses in rental revenue. We reiterated our strong opposition during the Housing Committee meeting’s public comment period.
Due to our advocacy efforts, the Committee voted to delay consideration of any SCEP fee increases at this time and suggested that HCID+LA and the City Administrative Officer revisit the matter in six months. We will continue to monitor this issue, advocate for our members interests and provide updates.
LOS ANGELES COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS TO UPDATE COUNTY’S TEMPORARY EVICTION MORATORIUM BASED ON ASSEMBLY BILL 3088 AND TO EXTEND THE MORATORIUM TO NOVEMBER 30, 2020

(1) Any extension, expansion, renewal, reenactment, or new adoption of a measure, however delineated, that occurs between August 19, 2020, and January 31, 2021, shall have no effect before February 1, 2021.”
Subsection (e) provides that: “The Legislature finds and declares that this section addresses a matter of statewide concern rather than a municipal affair as that term is used in Section 5 of Article XI of the California Constitution.”
The Association’s General Counsel, Craig Mordoh, submitted a letter to the County Counsel pointing out the County’s error. It is important to note that while the Board of Supervisors last extended the County’s temporary eviction moratorium on the same day as Assembly Bill 3088 was enacted, and most concerning is that the Board of Supervisors also set the County’s moratorium provisions as the baseline countywide, applicable to not only
