CALIFORNIA - Governor Gavin Newsom has signed an executive order to extend the halt on evictions for renters through July 28. The first order signed in March, protected renters through Sunday, May 31.

The governor's office said the order addresses a variety of issues like extending the waiver permitting the Department of Motor Vehicles to allow for mail-in renewals. It also waives certain administrative requirements that restrict child care programs from serving children essential workers.

Additionally, the order allows for those enrolled in teacher preparation programs during the 2019-2020 school year to receive their preliminary credential without the performance assessment, as long as they were unable to do so because of the pandemic.

This stretches further to those who are working to obtain teaching credentials or enroll in programs but can not without proper testing, which was canceled because of the coronavirus.

Requiring the Department of Housing and Community Development to waive certain regulations is also outlined in the order. These waivers are to regulations governing administration of Emergency Services Grant funding received under the CARES Act and implement reasonable accommodations to help ensure feasibility.

The order also suspends statutory set-asides for economic development and housing for Community Development Block Grant program funding received under the CARES Act.
