Learn about the CDC Eviction Moratorium

The CDC issued a moratorium to stop evictions. DRNC joined up with several other organizations to provide a bilingual information session about this information. This session includes information for immigrants.

You can also check out this video about the moratorium from Stop Evictions Network. Jesse Hamilton McCoy II, from Duke Law’s Civil Justice Clinic, explains the current housing crisis and actionable steps folks can take to defend and advocate for themselves against eviction. 

To download the moratorium declaration form, click here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/downloads/declaration-form.pdf

The CDC and State moratoriums have been extended through January 31, 2021. It is absolutely necessary to extend the moratorium on evictions until the end of the pandemic to avoid an eviction crisis. Learn more about the moratorium, as well as resources for tenants, homeowners, and community organizing.
