Stop Evictions During COVID-19 Crisis!

Are you facing an eviction?

The CDC has postponed (some) evictions until June 30, 2021.

Now through June 30, renters in North Carolina cannot be evicted for non-payment of rent if you have:

  • Been unable to pay your rent due to the pandemic because you have lost income and/or have new expenses such as childcare or medical expenses, and
  • Applied for the HOPE program by completing an application online or by speaking with a 211 specialist, OR
  • Completed the CDC Declaration Form and presented a copy to your landlord via email, US mail or hand delivery.

By taking these simple steps, you have protected your household from eviction.  If your landlord still attempts to evict you, contact Legal Aid of NC at 1-866-219-5262 or www.legalaidnc.org.

SIGN THE PETITION

We need your support in making clear to NC elected officials that #NoEvictionIsEssential when communities are having their health and well-being jeopardized. Housing is a human right. It is critical that we take all necessary action to protect individuals from evictions and, in worst cases, homelessness during the COVID-19 pandemic.
