On Sept 1st, 2021 the NY State Legislature extended the Eviction Moratorium until January 15th, 2022. This action protects over 860,000 households behind on rent from displacement.
If you are behind on rent due to loss of income related to the pandemic or the city’s shutdown, you can be protected from eviction by signing and submitting the Hardship Declaration. If you have already summited the HD, there is no need to submit again.
