We've got your back

Although we formed to increase the number of
renter voices in Palo Alto's public discourse, we are ultimately a community group comprised of tenants, neighbors, and friends. Every week we get emails from neighbors who want help negotiating with landlords, managing rent increases, landlord complaints, unfair evictions, and general advice. We are here to help!

Click here to see the Renter Resource page from the City of Palo Alto. It includes information about:

  • Landlord-Tenant Mediation (a FREE service paid for by the City) and help with COVID-19 Rent Relief: Housing.org

  • Rental Assistance and Services for Unhoused Community Members: LifeMoves.org

  • Affordable Housing: Palo Alto has failed to build enough affordable homes so there are long waitlists when you apply for affordable housing. Here is a list of Below Market Rate apartments you can sign-up for.
