Press Release: Eviction Moratorium Issued by CDC

 A national moratorium on evictions through December 31 has been issued by the Centers for Disease Control as part of the national response to COVID-19.  However, individuals must take action to secure this protection for themselves.  A declaration form MUST be completed and sworn to by the renter and then delivered to their landlord.

Renters in North Carolina can apply for the program online , or if you do not have internet or need assistance with the application, you can simply dial 2-1-1 or 888-892-1162 to speak with an NC 211 Intake Specialist who will help complete the application. Important Note:  The NC 211 Intake Specialists for HOPE are available between the hours of 7:00 AM and 6:00 PM Monday through Friday.  The only 24 hours access for applying for HOPE is through the on-line application. Community Partner organizations all across the state will work with applicants to complete the process and determine award eligibility and amount.
