New CDC eviction moratorium extension
Avoid eviction and stay tuned. Temporary Halt Until June 30, 2021
Thankfully, Americans who are concerned about being evicted for nonpayment of rent have until June 30, 2021 to find other housing options or work with their landlords to stay where they are. Still, there is plenty of work left to do to ensure that an eventual nationwide wave of evictions doesn’t increase housing insecurit
y as we work our way through the pandemic together. While new legi
slation and the new CDC eviction moratorium extension offers hope, you’ll also need to take certain actions to protect your interests as a tenant. Stay tuned for updates to this page as we closely monitor the status of our current federal eviction moratorium.
The CDC's eviction ban protects tenants who:
Have used their best efforts to obtain government assistance for housing
Are unable to pay their full rent due to a substantial loss of income
Are making their best efforts to make timely partial payments of rent, and
Would become homeless or have to move into a shared living setting if they were to be evicted.
In addition to the above requirements, one of the following financial criteria must apply. To qualify for prote
ction, tenants must:
Earned no more than $99,000 (individuals) or $198,000 (filing joint tax return) for the calendar year 2020
Expect to earn no more than $99,000 (individuals) or $198,000 (filing joint tax return) for the calendar year 2021
Not have been required to report any income to the IRS in 2020, or
Have received an Economic Impact Payment (stimulus check).
