On March 28, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Director Rochelle Walensky issued a 17-page order extending the CDC Eviction Moratorium from April 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021. The previous eviction moratorium order was set to expire on March 31.
The order provides tenants with eviction protections for unpaid rent due to the impact of COVID-19. Tenants will be able to provide their landlord a signed declaration that invokes the eviction moratorium protections. Tenants that have previously provided their landlord a signed declaration will continue to have the eviction moratorium protections and will not need to provide a new declaration.
NAHRO and HUD have provided resources to assist housing providers work with their tenants to catch up on unpaid rent and avoid eviction – these resources can be found here.
