On Aug. 4, 2020, the Santa Ana City Council voted unanimously to allocate $28.6 million in federal money toward a massive effort to provide financial and health assistance to members of the Santa Ana community affected by the pandemic. Santa Ana CARES was an undertaking unlike any by the City before.
Santa Ana residents impacted by COVID-19 who are behind on rent and facing eviction can apply for up to 12 months’ rent (which includes up to six months’ rental arrears since April 1, 2020) and receive free legal and mediation services starting February 1, 2021.
Free COVID-19 testing for Santa Ana residents is available at five kiosks located around the city. An appointment is required.

STAY AT HOME ORDER LIFTED
Santa Ana and Orange County are no longer in a Stay at Home Order and have returned to the Purple Tier of COVID-19 restrictions, which allows outdoor dining, hair salons to open with modifications and other limited operations.
The City of Santa Ana is supporting the County of Orange's effort to establish regional vaccine Super Points-of-Dispensing, or Super PODs, which will allow them to vaccinate thousands of residents and workers each day throughout the county.
The County opened its first Super POD site at Disneyland, making the vaccine available to eligible individuals. Multiple Super POD sites for mass vaccination are under consideration countywide.
