The State of California’s eviction moratorium ended on September 30, 2021. The City of Santa Ana has not extended a local eviction moratorium for residential or commercial tenants past that date.
Tenants are currently protected from eviction for debt accumulated between April 2020 and September 2021 if they have an application in process with a rental assistance program, such as the City’s CARES for Tenants Program.
Beginning October 1, 2021, your landlord must confirm that you have applied for rental assistance before they can try to evict you through the courts for failing to pay your rent.
