Stop Evictions During COVID-19 Crisis!

SIGN THE PETITION

We demand the Eviction Moratorium be extended until Herd Immunity (70% of individuals fully vaccinated) is reached in North Carolina and until all existing rental assistance funds available under the American Rescue Plan have been exhausted.

 

Are you facing an eviction?

There is no longer a CDC nor any state eviction moratorium in effect. After August 26, 2021, your landlord can file a Complaint for Summary Ejectment (often called an eviction) for your failure to pay rent and for any other violation of your lease. Courts will likely see an increase in landlord-tenant cases in the coming weeks and months, and the Housing Opportunities and Prevention of Evictions (HOPE) Program may aid.

The NC Housing Opportunities and Prevention of Evictions (HOPE) Program is currently accepting applications. The HOPE Program provides rent and utility bill assistance to renters who have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The HOPE Program serves low-income renters in 88 North Carolina counties. Low income is defined as earning less than or equal to 80% of the area median income for the county where the renter lives.

The 12 counties listed below received direct federal funding for rent and utility assistance programs. If you live in the one of these counties, you should apply to your local rent and utility assistance program instead of the HOPE Program:

  • Buncombe
  • Cabarrus
  • Cumberland
  • Durham
  • Forsyth
  • Gaston
  • Guilford
  • Johnston
  • Mecklenburg
  • New Hanover
  • Union
  • Wake
