Gov. Ducey extends moratorium on evictions
This afternoon, Gov. Doug Ducey signed an executive order extending the moratorium on residential evictions until Oct. 31, providing continued protections for renters who are facing economic hardship as a result of COVID-19. The 120-day moratorium was due to end July 25.
To qualify, eligible renters will need to notify their landlord or property owner of a hardship of COVID-19 in writing and request a payment plan. After Aug. 21, renters will need to provide their landlord or property owner a copy of their completed pending application for rental assistance through a state, city, county or nonprofit program.
The governor also announced a $5 million foreclosure prevention program, which provides financial assistance to individuals who rely on income from tenants to help them avoid foreclosure, as well as $650,000 in new funding for community action agencies to improve staffing and administration of rental assistance programs to get resources out to families and individuals faster.
