California Rental Housing Association

The California Rental Housing Association (CalRHA) represents over 18,000 members totaling more than 419,000 units, made up of small, medium and large rental housing owners throughout the State of California. Our purpose is to advocate in the best interest of the rental housing industry and collectively address industry needs.

We are affiliated with the National Apartment Association (NAA) and the following local associations:

  • Apartment Association, California Southern Cities, Inc. (AACSC)
  • Apartment Association of Greater Los Angeles (AAGLA)
  • Apartment Association of Orange County (AAOC)
  • East Bay Rental Housing Association (EBRHA)
  • Nor CAL Rental Property Association, Inc. (NCRPA)
  • North Valley Property Owners Association (NVPOA)
  • San Diego County Apartment Association (SDCAA)
  • Santa Barbara Rental Property Association (SBRPA)

CalRHA provides timely grassroots mobilization for the purpose of advocating at the state level and contributing to change in the multifamily housing industry.

CalRHA's website is also a great place to find updates on the latest lawsuits on eviction moratoria, rent registries, and key California mandates HERE; rental property news from around the state HERE; and links to rental assistance relief HERE.
Over the past few years, CalRHA has grown to become a trusted voice in Sacramento for rental housing providers thanks to your generous support. We've defeated a barrage of bad legislation and advanced policies that alleviate the burden on our industry, but the pandemic has heavily shifted political focus. Today, we're seeing more laws imposing costly requirements while violating our rights as rental property owners.

As the fight escalates, through the remainder of the year, we ask you to consider donating to the CalRHA Political Action Committee Fund and/or the CalRHA Litigation Fund. Every dollar donated to these separate funds will be used to educate lawmakers about the impacts to our industry, and to advance CalRHA's lawsuit against illegal legislation. We look forward to working together to protect our industry and affordably house Californians.
We will convene another Zoom conference when all of the legislative bills are finalized, and share our strategies for protecting our members.

Thank you for your continued support.
