The Attorney General's Office wants to inform communities across the state about the EXTENSION of the CDC Eviction Moratorium, now in place until June 30, 2021. While the CDC moratorium cannot stop a landlord from filing an eviction lawsuit, or provide rent relief, it can protect tenants from some types of evictions. It is also important to note that if a tenant is able to pay rent, they are encouraged to do so, as the CDC moratorium serves to protect those who have suffered enormous financial hardships due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To receive protection under the CDC moratorium, you must fill out and give the following declaration to your landlord: CDC COVID-19 Eviction Declaration. Tenants can also visit the Eviction Help Request site to submit a request for assistance.
Landlords should also work with tenants seeking rental assistance through programs such as the Rental Assistance for Families in Transition, find more information here: RAFT Details Site.
