Update on CDC Eviction Moratorium
The Trump Administration just issued an executive order effective on Friday, Sept. 4 that bans non-payment evictions through the end of the year. The order applies to individuals who have individual income less than $99,000 OR did not have to pay income tax in 2019 OR received a stimulus check and who are unable to pay rent due to income loss or extraordinary out-of-pocket medical expenses.
Under the CDC’s order tenants must provide a copy of this attached declaration to their landlord, owner of the residential property where they live, or other person who has a right to have them evicted or removed from where they live.
