Cooper Will Extend Eviction Moratorium

Wayne Howard
Staff Writer


So far, Congress didn't manage to pass a new stimulus bill that would have provided some relief to the many who are suffering from the economic downtown brought on by the pandemic and the restrictions that it produced.  Those who are having trouble paying their rent will get some help from the state.  Governor Roy Cooper announced Wednesday that he plans to extend the state’s evictions moratorium on residential evictions for non-payment of rent through at least January 31, 2021. 

“This holiday season, too many families are struggling to pay rent as the pandemic surges,” said Cooper. “As the first of the month approaches and rent becomes due, I wanted people to know that we plan to extend the moratorium on evictions.”

The details and language of the moratorium are forthcoming and will be based on how or whether Congress extends the federal moratorium. More information on the state’s extension will be available next week.
