Rent Evictions Delayed Until March 31
With President Joe Biden signing an executive order on Wed., Jan. 6--Inauguration Day--Roxboro Housing Authority (RHA) residents will receive additional rental assistance. Evictions due to non-payment of rent are delayed until March 31, 2021.
RHA residents are required to pay rent if financially able to and to avoid eviction after the moratorium.
The moratorium allows RHA to evict residents for all other lease violations, including criminal and illegal activities on or off RHA properties and for not complying to re-certification requirements to name a few examples. Waivers are in place to assist with receiving income verification, etc. for re-certification.
Housing industry officials says Federal and State rental assistance funding to cover past due rent is also expected. No details are available at this time.
Residents can contact Froncello Bumpass, RHA housing manager, at (336) 583-5626 to set up repayment agreements. If you have other housing questions, please contact Mr. Bumpass.
HCV residents can call Brad with Person Co. Section 8 at (919) 606-2788 for more information about the moratorium for that HUD rent subsidy program.
