How federal and local agencies are trying to help tenants affected by the COVID-19 virus.

evictionReprint from Eviction Law, March 19, 2020.  As the world seeks to contain the COVID-19 pandemic, policymakers across the U.S. are responding to the heightened insecurity so many face.

The authors promise to continually update the table as they build a larger map to house this information and welcome tips regarding what your community is putting into place.

Policymakers across America are implementing a wide range of supports, from placing a moratorium on all evictions, to more limited moratoriums for residents who can demonstrate lost wages due to coronavirus.

Be very careful about anyone who offers to help with your legal situation.  The consequences of any dramatic event, like the COVID-19 virus, are the creation of thousands of scams intended for only one purpose – STEALING YOUR MONEY.  Prior to the Internet we worried about local scams, but now the scams are coming from the other side of the world.  Do your homework.  Rely on government sites, not on the press (I cannot tell you how many times I have been misquoted by the press).  Always double-check sources when you best friend tells you about a quick fix.  Again, be very careful out there.

Remember to wash your hands often.
