CDC Eviction Moratorium
A federal eviction moratorium issued by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is in effect from September 4, 2020 to December 31, 2020. The temporary moratorium on evictions extends vital protections to tens of millions of renters at risk of eviction for nonpayment of rent during the global pandemic.
To be protected, qualified renters facing eviction should immediately provide a signed declaration to their landlords. For more details about the moratorium and a sample declaration that renters can use, read the National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) and National Housing Law Project (NHLP) Overview of National Eviction Moratorium and our National Eviction Moratorium: FAQ for Renters [Español].
The declaration can be found in these languages: Arabic | Simplified Chinese | Traditional Chinese | English | Spanish | Tagalog | Vietnamese
