COVID-19 Housing Resources

City of South El Monte


The LA County’s declaration of local public health emergency for COVID-19 ended on March 31, 2023

That means changes in some programs, but many services will continue to be available to support County residents. View an overview of what the public can expect in several key areas—from the availability of free testing to resources for tenants and landlords. 


Certain protections in the County’s COVID-19 Tenant Protections Resolution (formerly known as the LA County Eviction Moratorium) expired on March 31, 2023, but some protections for tenants remain and support for small landlords is also available.
