COVID-19: Resources for Workers and Renters

While the CCPA's work is focused on progressive policies that will help protect workers and their families during this difficult time, we have received many requests from workers and renters looking for resources to help them navigate uncertainty during the COVID-19 pandemic. The selection of resources which appear on this page are for informational purposes. They do not constitute legal or financial advice, and their inclusion does not imply the CCPA's endorsement or approval.
