Are all the various housing assistance programs updated in the COVID-19 Resource directory?

I refer to it for resource sharing and referral.

to everyone this time: Emphasizing the point of tenant stories and calling legislators. Many legislators are unaware of the severity of this issue and don’t see it as a big problem. Not to mention landlords have strong lobbyists in Sacramento pushing against these type of bills. We appreciate any and all support!
