CDC Eviction Moratorium and Chicago Tenants Movement Hotline Goes Live
New Federal Eviction Moratorium: Get Protected Today!
Just this week, the Centers for Disease Control announced a nationwide ban on evictions until the end of December. Anyone earning less than $99,000 annual income (or households earning $198,000 for joint returns) and claiming loss of income or hardship due to COVID-19 is protected. To take advantage of this new protection, you MUST fill out the CDC declaration form and send a copy to your landlord. Keep a copy for yourself, and proof of sending. Once signed and sent, the declaration protects you in your home. Be aware, this order does NOT forgive debts, does NOT block fees, and does NOT prevent eviction for other reasons than nonpayment.
