Information on the CDC Eviction Order:

Federal Resources and Reminders from JHA


  • CDC Eviction Moratorium issued on September 4, 2020 expires on December 31, 2020.

  • To be eligible for the declaration, you must meet all five of the following conditions:
    1. Make less than $99,000 (or $198,000 if you file a joint tax return)

    2. Be unable to make full rent “due to substantial loss of household income, loss of compensable hours of work or wages, a lay-off, or extraordinary out-of-pocket medical expenses”

    3. Be making an effort to make timely, partial rent payments

    4. Have used your “best efforts” to seek out and apply for all available state or local rental assistance programs

    5. Be at risk of homelessness or at risk of having to double up with others in cramped, close quarters if you were evicted

  • 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.
