The CDC issued a new eviction moratorium on August 3, 2021 to temporarily halt evictions in counties where COVID-19 is spreading rapidly. If you are struggling to pay rent, the new pause in evictions may help you stay in your home, but you may need to take action.
If you’ve already handed in the form, you are protected until October 3, 2021. Your landlord cannot remove you from your home just because of unpaid rent.
Has your housing, employment, or income situation changed? If so, give your landlord an updated CDC Declaration to stay protected.
If you are having trouble paying your rent, you can still get this protection. You must take action to avoid eviction for unpaid rent.
People who were evicted under a court order between August 1 and August 3, 2021 cannot return to their homes or undo their evictions because of the new CDC Order.
After you’ve given your landlord the CDC Declaration, here are some steps you can take, depending on your situation.
If you’re looking for help with rent and utilities, you’re not alone. State and local organizations are distributing federal rental assistance in their communities.
