On August 31, the State passed legislation prohibiting evictions of tenants before February 1, 2021 as a result of rent owed due to a COVID-19 related hardship accrued between March 4 – August 31, 2020. To be eligible, the tenant must provide a declaration of hardship according to the legislation's timelines. Rent and mortgage payments are not waived, they are only deferred. Residents should continue to make payments if they can, and should coordinate with their mortgage servicer or property management.
