Stop the Repeal of Costa-Hawkins: 2024 Contribution Campaign

Advocate, Legislate,

Under Attack...Again

To help stop the so-called "Justice for Renters" initiative, which will be a proposition on the ballot in 2024, the East Bay Rental Housing Association is asking for your support. We need to fight this third attempt to repeal Costa-Hawkins, led by the same anti-housing activists who failed twice with Propositions 10 and 21 in 2018 and 2020. We are helping our state affiliate, CalRHA, raise $5 million towards this campaign, so we are all in this together.

  • Protect Vacancy Decontrol
  • Protect New Construction, Single-Family Homes, and Condos from Rent Control


The Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act is a California state law that It also protects VACANCY DECONTROL - a policy that allows rental housing providers to reset the rental rate on any rent-controlled apartment after a renter moves out. Costa-Hawkins is extremely important because it exempts single-family homes, condominiums, and new construction built after 1995 from RENT CONTROL.
