Preventing eviction at all costs is extremely important!
Evictions go on your permanent record, and the number of available units in York County is scarce, meaning tenants are having difficulties finding new apartments and houses to rent.
If you are unable to pay your rent, you can take two steps to prevent an eviction. First, you must fill out a CDC Declaration Form using the button below. Once signed, hold onto this form and be prepared to present it to the court should your landlord file for an eviction. Secondly, show up to your hearing if one is scheduled.
If you are not present, it’s highly likely that a magistrate will judge in your landlord’s favor.
Community Progress Council’s HUD-certified counselors are here to help you navigate this process. Email email@example.com or call (717) 846-4600, ext. 270, to talk to a resource navigator help you avoid eviction.
THE COVID-19 RENT RELIEF PROGRAM
Effective November 5, 2020 – Community Progress Council can no longer accept applications for Pennsylvania Housing & Finance Agency’s COVID-19 Rent Relief Program. If you are behind in your rent or facing eviction, please contact our counselors at (717) 846-4600, ext. 270, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Our team can help you find resources to help you avoid eviction from your home.
Any extensions to the Rent Relief Program or addition of new rental assistance programs will be posted on this page.
THE CDC EVICTION MORATORIUM
Center for Disease Control has placed a national moratorium on evictions for eligible individuals or families until January 31, 2021. But in order to be considered a “covered person” you must meet a set of criteria, available at the link below. Signing the declaration form (by following the link) is a crucial step to avoiding eviction.
