More than 200,000 older and disabled Californians make their homes in a wide range of licensed facilities that provide housing along with some level of care and supervision. These settings include Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs), Adult Residential Facilities (ARFs), and Group Homes. These individuals face a high risk of unlawful eviction, and housing attorneys can play an important role in keeping people housed by learning the ins and outs of how California’s eviction procedures interact with federal and state regulations specific to these facilities.
This webinar, Defending California’s Facility Residents from Evictions: Protections for People Living in Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly, Adult Residential Facilities, and Similar Licensed Facilities, will:
- Cover important setting-specific eviction protections that residents have in these facilities, based largely on state licensing regulations.
- Explore the new, stronger eviction protections and processes that apply when a facility accepts Medi-Cal funding for residents’ care.
- Offer practical advice to provide clients with effective representation.
This training does not include nursing facilities, which are subject to an entirely separate set of federal regulations.
