CDC Eviction Ban Information

Struggling to pay your rent because of COVID-19? There are resources available!

The CDC has issued a temporary ban on evictions through December 31, 2020 for those who meet certain criteria. Renters must fall under one of the following categories:

  • expect to earn no more than $99,000 (individuals) or $198,000 (filing joint tax return) in 2020
  • not have been required to report any income to the IRS in 2019, OR
  • have received an Economic Impact Payment (stimulus check) pursuant to Section 2201 of the CARES Act.

Renters must also meet all of the following standards:

  • have used their best efforts to obtain government assistance for housing
  • are unable to pay their full rent due to a substantial loss of income
  • are making their best efforts to make timely partial payments of rent, and
  • would become homeless or have to move into a shared living setting if they were to be evicted.

If you qualify for this assistance, you can download the CDC’s declaration form here, or pick up a print copy at the library.
