Update on eviction moratorium extension

On August 3, the CDC issued a new order extending the moratorium on evictions due to non-payment of rent through October 3. Dane County is currently at a high rate of community transmission, so the extension currently applies here. The Tenant Resource Center has a declaration tool you can use to determine whether you are eligible and send a declaration to your landlord. You also need to apply for government assistance available to you. The Tenant Resource Center administers the Dane CORE program, which allocates federal emergency rent assistance funds, and you can apply online.
