NC Eviction Moratorium Extended Through 6/30/21
Yesterday evening Governor Roy Cooper extended North Carolina’s statewide residential eviction moratorium through June 30, 2021 (Executive Order 206), following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s recent extension of a nationwide moratorium.
He also issued Executive Order 207 expediting the processing of unemployment insurance claims and will stay in effect through June 30 as well. The Governor quoted in the news release stating "Even though North Carolina is turning the corner on this pandemic, many are still struggling, these Executive Orders will help families stay in their homes and help hard-hit businesses increase their revenue."
If you are following the lawsuits brought against the CDC in multiple states, you know that many rulings have come against the CDC. However, the latest rulings do not affect states’ eviction moratoriums. NAA continues to advocate against the CDC moratorium and urge for meaningful rental assistance.
Take action today and ask your members of Congress to support ending the federal eviction moratorium.
