But in California, the State’s own eviction moratorium still stands. Meanwhile in San Diego, the county is launching two new rental assistance programs meant to address needs not covered by any current programs. Here's Alex Martinez, the interim assistant director of the county’s housing & community development services. “if the tenants were over income or for some other reason they weren’t able to access these other programs, the small landlords, the small mom and pop landlords are able to access this program and get assistance with their rents that’s been owed to them.” For more information, go to s-d-h-c dot org. ###### The second round of California state stimulus checks started going out yesterday, according to the office of governor gavin newsom. The second round pays out 600 dollars to those who make 75,000 dollars a year or less and didn’t receive a check in the first round. The state plans to pay out a total of 12 billion dollars in relief over the course of the stimulus check rounds. The governor’s office says two out of every three Californians should be eligible for the checks. ##### This coming Monday is the deadline to register to vote by mail for the September 14th gubernatorial recall election.
