Changes in Military and Federal Resources

 

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued an order on September 1, 2020 that banned landlords in the U.S. from evicting tenants who can’t afford to pay their rent or other rental related fees.  The order was has now been extended three times, first it was to the end of 2020, then to June 30, 2021, and now to July 31, 2021. The CDC said that the ban is in effect to prevent further spread of COVID-19. It is not expected to be extended again.

Not all tenants fall under the order however, and there are certain factors a tenant must meet to have the protections apply to them. Still, if you are at all concerned about being evicted, please click here to read the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) sheet and to find local help from your nearest legal aid organization.
