2013-2014 HAP Manual Updates
The 2013-2014 HAP Manual has many changes that are not currently part of SFHomeless.net. The question is whether the wiki or the manual contains the most up to date information. The most efficient way to ensure the wiki has the best information is to add the 2013-2014 HAP Manual text into its respective wiki agency page under a new section “2013-2014 HAP Manual Updates”. It will then be up to future wiki users to determine whether and how to update the agency page with the new information.

If you get a Summons and Complaint for an eviction (“Unlawful Detainer”) or a Notice to Vacate from the sheriff, bring all of your paperwork to their office immediately. The EDC prepares tenants’ legal paperwork and provides step-by-step instructions for tenants to defend themselves in the court system. The EDC prepares a “stay” to delay eviction for a week if the sheriff is scheduled to evict and one can pay one week’s rent to the Court. The Rental Assistance Disbursement Component (RADCo) assists qualified tenants with back rent, provided they can pay in the future (see the website for criteria). There is a sliding fee scale and services include the languages Spanish, Chinese, and usually Russian and French.
