To help people stay in stable housing during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued an order that means you may be protected from eviction if you can’t afford to pay your rent. To be protected, you must sign and give a CDC Declaration to your landlord.
The CDC just extended its eviction protection order until July 31, 2021. If you already gave your landlord a CDC Declaration and your situation hasn’t changed, you don’t need to do it again to be protected until July 31. If you haven’t given your landlord a Declaration yet, find out if you’re eligible and see the steps to take.
Here’s what else you should know:
State and local organizations are distributing federal money to help with rent and utilities. You or your landlord may be able to apply, depending on where you live. Learn more here.
Help is available. If you’re trying to understand all your options, we have suggestions for what to do, and who to talk to, based on your situation. Find out what you can do next.
