The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued an updated federal eviction moratorium for nonpayment of rent due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This will delay some evictions through October 3, 2021, in counties with high rates of COVID-19 transmission. The moratorium stops residential evictions for eligible renters for not paying rent or fees only. Tenants can still be evicted for other reasons, such as conducting criminal activity or damaging the property.
To qualify, you must provide a signed declaration to your landlord. Confirm that your landlord receives the form. Click here to download the form.
