San Diego Housing Commission Eviction Prevention Program 

The San Diego Housing Commission is administering the San Diego Housing Commission Eviction Prevention Program (SDHC EPP) with U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG-CV) funds to provide education & public awareness relating to the Program to certain populations in the City of San Diego, and emergency and limited legal assistance to eligible tenants in accordance with HUD CDBG-CV regulatory requirements.

The San Diego Eviction Prevention Collaborative is a network of tenant-facing organizations in San Diego. The City Heights CDC is the fiscal agent for the Eviction Prevention Collaborative and is administering the outreach and education components of the SDHC EPP contract.

The overall goal of this project is to build public awareness around tenant’s rights and to educate as many tenants as possible on their rights to decrease the number of evictions in the City of San Diego.

The SDHC Eviction Prevention Program outreach and education has three primary goals:  

■  Contact renters across the county to inform them they have rights and register them for a Know Your Rights Workshop.  

■  Educate renters across the county on available tenant protections and rights.  

■  Provide community resource information to renters for further support and assistance (e.g., legal service providers, tenant organizing, Know Your Rights flyers, etc.).
