Gov. Cooper Extends Eviction Moratorium
Last week, Governor Roy Cooper extended the eviction moratorium for North Carolinians through January 31, 2021 to help the approximately 485,000 North Carolinians in rental housing who are behind on rent payments stay in their homes.
The Executive Order also extends protections for people applying for rent and utility assistance through the state’s Housing Opportunities and Prevention of Evictions (HOPE) Program. So far, more than 21,000 renters have been notified that they will receive HOPE assistance, totaling $37.4 million in assistance to North Carolinians.
