Renters MUST SUBMIT A FORM to Qualify for the Moratorium. Here's How:

  • All adults on the lease will have to submit a signed form to their landlord.
  • They will have to confirm that they have had a substantial loss in household income, that they cannot pay full rent, and they have made best efforts to pay partial rent.
  • The renter also must specify that an eviction would likely lead to homelessness or force them to live in close quarters with others.
  • Please note the following warning in the form: This declaration is sworn testimony, meaning that you can be prosecuted, go to jail, or pay a fine if you lie, mislead, or omit important information.
  • Renters can use this form from the CDC to submit to their landlord.
