TEMPORARY CDC EVICTION MORATORIUM

If you are a landlord or tenant, this is important information regarding the eviction moratorium. Follow these links for information in English and Spanish:

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention released an emergency order to stop residential evictions from September 4 to December 31, 2020. Learn more about how to use this protection and if you qualify from our fact sheet below. The CDC’s eviction moratorium started on 9/4, but you are NOT automatically covered. If you wish to use the waiver because you cannot pay your rent, you must sign this statement and provide it to your landlord.
