If you have not paid your rent and have been turned over for eviction, signing the Declaration halts the eviction through December 31, 2020. However, you must meet all of the criteria listed on the Declaration in order to halt the eviction. If you do not meet all of the criteria and sign the Declaration you are considered to be committing perjury and can be prosecuted, go to jail, or pay a fine.
The Housing Authority can and will continue to evict for non-rent reasons.
Public Housing residents with questions concerning this information should contact their community manager.
