You want to contact the housing authority in the community where you live. There are actually very few rent controlled communities in California. On the other hand a rent increase of $100 may require a significant amount of notice depending on your current rent.

Very few places have rent control in California. San Jose is not one of them. Therefore they do not have a rent board either. If the rent increase is more than 10% you are entitled to 60-days notice before it takes effect. If it is not more than 10% you are entitled to 30-days notice.
