San Francisco Rent Relief Tracker 09/02/2021

San Francisco Rent Relief Tracker

Check out our newest blog post about the rent tracker, with an introductory message:

Please note that if you can pay rent, pay it. If you can pay even 25% of your rent, pay it. Hoarding your cash from landlords, when over 50% of landlords generate income solely by renting, is unethical. Landlords cannot afford to keep a roof over their head while tenants have received huge cash bail outs from the government, unemployment and stimulus checks. We volunteer at the Food Bank and many times we've seen bags of groceries (that we bagged) jammed behind supermarket cashier stands i.e. people that are employed with access to free or heavily discounted food are draining the Food Bank's resources from people who have NO money. Be sensible and don't be greedy. Pay your fair share and regain your moral compass.
