On June 24, 2021, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) extended the federal eviction moratorium on evictions for nonpayment of rent in response to the ongoing financial challenges faced by renters due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The CDC eviction mortarium protects Oregon tenants who qualify from being evicted for nonpayment of July’s rent.
In order to qualify for these protections, tenants must meet certain income requirements, must experience financial hardship, and must meet other eligibility requirements. Qualifying tenants must sign a written declaration and provide it to their landlord by either mail, email, fax or personal delivery.
All adults on the lease within the household must sign and submit a declaration. The declaration form is available in:
The CDC declaration form outlines the specific eligibility requirements and is different from the written declaration required under Oregon’s eviction moratorium.
State law still protects tenants that accrued nonpayment balances from April 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021. These accrued balances are due by February 28, 2022. Under state law, the obligation to pay regular monthly rent resumes on July 1, 2021. The CDC eviction moratorium protects tenants from being evicted for their failure to pay rent in July.
