Other Resources

Please call 2-1-1 to be connected to other resources who may be able to assist you. The following are available resources to consider:

Residential Evictions

The Centers for Disease Control order declared a national moratorium on certain residential evictions for nonpayment of rent, as well as other fees or charges. The moratorium applied only to tenants who meet certain requirements and provide a signed form declaration to their landlords.

To sign the declaration, a tenant must be able to meet certain financial criteria, be unable to pay full rent due to an income loss or “extraordinary” medical bills, have used best efforts to obtain governmental rent assistance, likely become homeless or forced to “live in close quarters” in another residence if evicted, and use best efforts to make timely partial payments that are as close to the full payment as the individual’s circumstances permit.
