The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved measures to create a rental assistance program and expand eviction protections at a virtual meeting Tuesday morning.

The legislation also bars late fees and rent hikes in parts of the county and prohibits evictions based on unauthorized occupants or pets.

The board also approved several new tenant protection measures on Tuesday. Several strengthen the protections for renters in mobile home parks, including a moratorium on evictions of renters who can’t pay for the space rent for their mobile homes.
