CDC Moratorium on Eviction

The Center for Disease Control has issued a National Moratorium on Eviction

If you’re having trouble keeping up with your rent payments, the Federal Government has issued an order that prevents landlords in the US from evicting many of their tenants until December 31, 2020. This Form Helper can help you see if you are covered, and produce the right letter (called a “Declaration”) to send to your landlord, as required by the order.  Help with Declaration Form

A printable Declaration can be found here: Declaration Form To Give Your Landlord
