How Has COVID‑19 Affected Renters and Homeowners?

Our office has released a report assessing how coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has affected renters and homeowners. In October, the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia estimated that California renters owed $1.7 billion in unpaid rent due to COVID-19.

Importantly, this estimate is specific to COVID-19 through December 2020. Therefore, the estimate does not include underlying rental debt due to the state’s longstanding housing affordability challenges or upcoming rental debt due to COVID-19 that might occur in the coming year.
