The eviction protections under the COVID-19 Emergency Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention Act were extended through August 31st, 2021. The bill was set to expire on May 1st, 2021, so this extension works retroactively to cover the days between then and today.
This extension means that most tenants can protect themselves from eviction if they sign a Hardship Declaration and deliver it to their landlord, an agent of their landlord and/or their local Housing Court. PLEASE fill out a Hardship Declaration as soon as possible! This can protect you from evictions!
